This year the 4th has been fAbUlOuS to say the least! There were almost no clouds in the sky and the thermometer hit 80! We started off the day with a 5K walk around a local lake and then hung out inside(to prevent turning into lobsters). We did some baking for the evening picnic and headed out about 5. The church crowd gathers at a house on the lake for a cookout and swimming and late night firework festivities. (The fireworks here don’t start until after 10 pm!!) I was pretty good and kept the eating light by taking my own turkey dogs to eat and kept the food on the veggie side. For dessert, I limited it to some of the fruit pizza my mom made and a little bit of dump cake. I had quite a bit of water as it was toasty sitting in the sun and the reflection off the lake. We ended up heading home before the bugs came out as I’m not feeling staying up till 11pm in hopes of hitting the gym at 5am.
I leave you with one of the best views around:
