I'm a yankee doodle dandy...
We have had the most wonderful July 4th weekend that a little family could have. While I can't say we did anything all that exciting, we just had fun hanging out together, working on our remodel, going to the mall, and enjoying family time. On Saturday night, our plans to watch the Mudcats game were thwarted by the lack of tickets to said game (perhaps we should have called ahead before driving to Zebulon!). But instead we drove back to Raleigh to watch the fireworks at the fairgrounds. We had a fantastic view from the parking lot of Carter Finley, and there were lots of kids running around and playing with sparklers as we waited for it to get dark enough for the real show.
Jay was completely mesmerized by the sparklers ... he called them "karklers." And then, when the real fireworks started, he was even more excited to see the big karklers in the sky. He didn't get cranky a bit, even though it was WAY past bedtime when we finally got him back home.
All in all, I couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend together with my 2 favorite guys.
