These are the days to remember

The fourth of July was a sheer delight with our time at the beach, just watching the loons duck and bob in the water and walking to the very end of the stone jetty in the water. Eating ice cream and dangling our feet over the river and then walking along the bridge at just the right moment to witness the fiery sunset, tailor made for such a celebratory night, and then we were treated to an impromptu fireworks display over the river -- seemingly just for us. Even as we got home, in the dark of the night, the fireflies were putting on an enchanting fireworks display of their own. And to top it all off, we played a hilarious game of Apples to Apples that was truly inspired, the more ridiculous it got, the more we laughed ourselves silly.


  1. A week's worth of relaxing, laughing, and celebrating packed into one fantastic day. Can't wait to do it again soon!

  2. Best week ever :) {{{hugs}}} miss you guys already!
