No Celebrating This 4th of July
I have to be honest- I'm kind of glad to have a really good excuse not to go out and watch fireworks this year. I really don't like the crowds, the muggy, buggy weather, and the late night that 4th of July presents. I know.... I'm a mean, nasty mom. Fortunately my kids have never been to a 4th of July celebration, so they don't know what they are missing.
This weekend we are supposed to have record breaking heat. We are also supposed to have monsoon storms both Sunday and Monday evenings. Talk about hot and gross! I really don't want to sit around outside for hours waiting for a 10 minute fireworks show. We will try to go out in our yard Sunday night and see if we can see the display from the neighboring town, which we should be able to. I know we can hear it every year.
Instead of going out, we'll do a family activity here at home. Daniel has recently taught the girls how to play both checkers and chess. All three of them are now obsessed with the games. That should keep us all busy for the evening. It's nice and low key, too. Just what I need right now.
What are your plans for the holiday weekend?
