There’s a full house at Erin’s this week. Emma Shugart, my nephew’s daughter, is here and we’re here. Good thing Erin has a nice big table. We all fit. And the kids are loving having Emma around, especially the girls. They play with Legos for hours on end.
Fourth of July was lots of fun. We hung out at home and in the pool for most of the day, had an early supper and headed out to the Flower Mound Fair and fireworks. I have no idea where Flower Mound gets their money but the festival.–rides and games–were free. The lines were reasonable when we first got there, got a little long as time went on. We took photos of the kids in line. It is nearly impossible to get a picture of Declan with his cute smile unless you sneak up on him. We figure he’ll turn out okay when he grows up (Sean did) but right now, he’s going through the terrible fours.
Fireworks were marvelous. Traffic getting out was typical. I lasted all day, thanks to Advil and comfortable chairs. When we were in line for the kids rides, I’d sit on the grass. (Unlike Florida grass, I could sit and not worry about fire ants!)
So, life is good. I’m going to a birthday luncheon with Calli and her American girl doll while Erin takes the other girls shopping at the mall. The guys are staying home to hang out and swim.
