I hope everyone out there had a fun and safe 4th of July. We're down in Flordia visiting my folks. We were having a cookout on the beach when a really strong rain came in off the coast. Between that and the strong wind, we were absolutely soaked. But we stuck it out, and the rain passed and we had a nice cook out despite. Afterwards we took the boys swimming. The gulf was really rough after the storm, and Michael and Jacob (and us) had a wonderful time swimming, and getting bowled over by the waves as they crashed on the beach as the sun went down. It was a profoundly normal, and wonderfully blissful time. And unlike last year, they were OK with the fireworks after sunset.
I hope everone else had a great time.
