We started the month with our traditional trip to Mooresville on July 3rd for their fireworks. I started off the afternoon with a flat tire that required a quick trip to the tire store to fix. The weather was pretty yucky as it had been the past few years, but we made the best of it. The kids got to take pictures with some fun characters roaming around the site so they were pretty happy about that. The kids also enjoyed playing in the rain before the fireworks. The fireworks were a little shorter than usual because of the rain, but the kids still had a great night and that is what matters.
July 4th was pretty All American. We took the kids swimming in the afternoon, picked some blueberries from the garden, grilled hamburgers for dinner, played with sparklers, and then watched fireworks in the neighborhood.
The rest of the month was pretty quiet and low key for the family. The kids kept themselves busy with playing and being creative while I studied and Todd worked and took care of the house.
This was one of the funniest things I have ever seen.
They created a show called "Beauty and the Shark." It was Oscar worthy, I promise!
So, that was July. Not exciting, but still entertaining for all.
