we went to my parents for the Fourth of July this year.
it was a beautiful day!
we went to the pool for a few hours.
i even took a little short nap on the lounge chair!
that never happens.
we had a yummy meal that my mom made for us.
while she was working on the grill i took a little photo tour of my parent's yard.
we ate our delicious summer meal complete with my mom's famous margaritas.
which turned out to be quite an adventure filled with too many total weird things to list.
but it ended with me calling 911 for an elderly man who fell down in the dark and was bleeding all over.
it was such a crazy 4th!
then.... we left these three with grandma & grandpa for a couple days.
mr. duerksen and i drove home after the fireworks show because waffle was at home.
we were so tired... i was trying so hard not to fall asleep... and did fall asleep a couple times.
we cranked up 80s & 90s and were singing loud trying to keep ourselves awake.
and laughing a lot.
time together JUST US is refreshing.
we need it.
it is so nice to have a conversation uninterrupted & not have to think about the everyday things like chores and dishes and making dinner even for a short time.
and also because i super like hanging out with him!
scott is due back from his youth group trip any minute.
and life is back to normal.
and that is good too.
