Our grande plans to go fishing
and have a picnic on the 4th of July
were totally soaked by a rain filled day.
We didn't let that stop us from having fun, though.
We just moved the picnic inside.
We had the best meal with fun decorations.
My dad organized an impromptu American trivia game
that had us all singing God Bless America
and trying to remember the Presidents
that are carved on Mt. Rushmore.
The rain continued after lunch
so we went to the movies.
Did I ever tell you how much I love going
to the movies in the middle of the afternoon?
It's so much fun.
The rain still didn't stop after the movie either
so we packed up and played at an indoor pool.
We were the only people there
and we stayed for hours and hours.
The best way to run little boys ragged
is to wear them out at the pool.
So, we managed to still have fun
despite the gloomy weather.
We missed seeing fireworks, though.
I hope that you and yours
had a happy 4th of July too!
