Even though it’s great to catch up with extended family, I have to admit that I was really disappointed that the 4th wasn’t going to be filled with our usual boating, barbecue, Stadium of Fire and fireworks.
But I think we were doomed from the get-go.
We wanted to have some semblance of a holiday because the reunion didn’t start until mid-afternoon. We woke up and went out to breakfast which is Troy’s favorite thing to do. He actually got this holiday off work which hasn’t happened yet this year since he works with foreign markets.
The boys sat outside in rocking chairs and Troy taught them how to play checkers. That was the highlight of the day.
