And speaking of his sisters- I recently had an experience with Katie and Suzie that concisely shows one of the main differences between these two girls. I had gone out into our garden to get some basil for a salad I was making. Suzie and Katie were both standing by the sink when I went to rinse it off. Katie said, "What is that digusting smell?" While at the same time Suzie picked up one of the basil leaves, held it to her nose and said, "This smells awesome! What is it?" Suz is destined to work in food. What 6 year old enjoys the smell of basil?!?

With 4th of July being in the middle of the week, we felt like we were celebrating all week long. We had some highlights and some lowlights as well.
Lowlight: It was only for an afternoon- too short! (But I think Becky, Liz and Stacey will agree that it is my own fault it was too short.;)
Lowlight: Having all the blankets I set out the night before to save our spot get soaking wet by the first rain we've seen in months and then trampled on by all the people setting up vendor tents right behind where we sat.
Another sad lowlight was having my aunt break her ankle in three places while walking to our spot in the park. Luckily she was surrounded by paramedics within minutes because we sit by the end of the 5K route so there were still alot of them around. And the park is right across the street from IMC so she got to be in the parade via an ambulance that took her across the street. It was a pretty bad break. So sorry Aunt Deirdre!
Lowlight: Having my neighbor's daughter get whacked in the neck by a flying otter pop that my brother-in-law threw out during the parade.
Lowlight: Watching the zombies in the parade that are advertising the haunted house. I do not enjoy this entry in the parade at all.
No lowlight here- It was all pure joy!
Lowlight: Having one of the home-lit fireworks tip over and then go all haywire- firing into the bushes and within inches of people.
Watching Annie in her softball allstar tournament- unfortunately I forgot to take my camera.
Lowlight: Sitting in the 100 degree, humid weather on metal stands with very little shade and then they lost both of their tournament games. But they gave it a good try and we still have one more tournament to go. Hopefully I will try to bring my camera next time.
All in all- it was a great weekend! Happy 4th!
