We had a wonderful 4th of July holiday around our house! Matt and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary (and 14th year of being together!) with lobsters and steamers. It was delicious! Matt realized after these many years of saying he didn’t like lobster that he actually likes it – as long as I do all the work of getting the meat out of the shell.
The weather was gorgeous. It went from cool, muggy and rainy right before the long weekend, to hot hot hot all weekend long. We are back to cool and rainy now, but the heat was nice while it lasted! We may not have been sleeping all that well, but we definitely enjoyed all of our time together as a family.
There was ice cream, running through the sprinkler, movies when the sun was too high for the kiddos to play outside, breakfast out at our favorite dive restaurant and general merriment.
This was the first year in a long time that we didn’t have a BBQ. I’m not sure why, maybe we were just ready for a little quiet. But, it was nice nonetheless!
I also realized that we really should incorporate more long weekends into our lives. I woke up so refreshed on Monday morning. It was a definite change! Maybe because I slept better Sunday night with a bit of a cool down outside.
Did you do anything fun for the holiday weekend?
