July 4th 2012
Today has been a great day. I am overflowing with contentment.
We had no particular plans for July 4th this year. Hubby had planned to take Em to the movies for her very first Movie theatre movie ever. He found a theatre that was showing kids movies every Wednesday for just one dollar. Perfect, because we didn’t know if she would like it and it wouldn’t be painful to leave early having spent only $3 as opposed to $36 or more. I wasn’ t sure I was going to go, being tempted to stay home and clean the house. Thankfully, I went. I can’t imagine having missed out on this. Yogi Bear was good, but Em’s excitement was overwhelmingly joyful.
Then after, we walked around the little shopping/restaurant area and found the coolest pond. Luckily we got pictures…
Waiting for food at Sharkey’s.
Yum!! I got a grilled salmon taco and it was incredible (and gluten free!)! I’m always happy to find salmon that I like. And if you don’t know Sharkey’s, the fish is all wild caught, the veggies and rice are organic and meat is hormone free. If they can do it, why can’t more places?
We came home and the three of us relaxed. All together but doing as we pleased.
We capped it all off with a swim. Ah, summer. Oh, and then bath for the girl. We’re happy and pooped. Just time left for books and snuggling up for sleep.
Happy Fourth Of July!!!!!
