An Epic 4th of July Weekend

I don't know about you, but my weekend was jam-packed with fun activities.

The BF had spent some time online looking for new and different date ideas. The idea that we tried out was foot golf.  Foot golf is a combination of soccer and golf. It sounds weird, but it was really fun.  I hadn't played any kind of soccer in years. The only downside was that this particular course overlapped the real golf course.

My Dad had the brilliant idea to head down the shore Friday morning.  We had to leave early in the morning to beat the holiday traffic.  When we got to the beach, it was incredibly foggy.  After a less than perfect morning, we were able to get some sun.  Five minutes before we arrived back home, it started pouring.

I was able to spend a little bit of time working on my box of unfinished sewing projects.  Of course, I chose to finish a kimono/ swimsuit cover up so that I could wear it on the Fourth.  Speaking of clothes, Suz and I accidentally wore exact opposite outfits yesterday.  It was absolutely hysterical.

The BF and I spent celebrated the 4th at the same cookout we attend every year. Even though it was cloudy and rather temperate, we still spent a little bit of time in the pool. The kids enjoyed having some adults to play with.

As we waited for the fireworks, it started to get cooler and windier.  The wind lead to rain. This meant that the party moved indoors. No one was sure that the fireworks were even going to be set off. All of a sudden, we heard the first big cracking sound.  Everyone hurried outside.

The display wasn't perfect because of the rain.  Still, it was fireworks on the 4th of July.  Everyone grabbed for umbrellas, sweatshirts, and any sort of cover possible.  

When we returned to the house, the BF took my wet sweatshirt so that he could put it in the dryer for me. I had a warm and cozy sweatshirt and a warm and fuzzy heart.
