No Fireworks, but a Nice Weekend

I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend!  We did the normal family stuff like make red, white and blue sprinkled cupcakes, played board games, went for ice cream at Mama Laura's, and had steaks on the grill:


July 4th weekend is always low-key for me.  I don't like crowds or fireworks, so it is a holiday of relaxation. But don't worry, Spencer still gets to swim in blistering heat, fight crowds and traffic and then swat mosquitoes in muggy, humid weather while ooohing and awwwwing over colorful, loud lights....only he goes with other family members, not his mommy ;-)

Will and I stayed home, in the AC, sipping Prosecco, munching on hummus and chips and watching funny movies.  Celebrating our nation's Independence felt wonderful...and a comfortable 70 degrees.

Since my weekend was dedicated to relaxing, I don't have much to blog about this week.  Here are a couple of my favorite cartoons until I think about something else to write about....

Sounds like a nice relaxing weekend :) I'm with you and don't like the noise of fireworks but I love the visual effects.
