How was your celebration?
I hope it was wonderful and exciting:).
The Fourth of July is such a fun day for us...even though we are smack dab in the middle of haying.
We're tired, both mentally and physically this time of the year, but celebrating our country just adds a little "spark" to our incredibly busy time:).
Here are a few pictures from our day...
My Dad almost threw this little table away!
Mom wasn't using it, so the kids painted it for me and then distressed.
I have had it everywhere!
In the kitchen, I am going to use it when I am canning.
It has been sooo useful and easy to move around from indoors to outdoors.
Our favorite....juicy watermelon!
My climbing roses are in bloom and looked so ready for the Fourth of July!
The hay is down.
Darren spent the day fluffing it into billowy rows.
We sit in chairs fluffed with pillows and cozy blankets and finish the day watching a "show" that the kids put on.
Just little fireworks...as the whole field could go up!
The kids really love it, though!
My boys...they LOVE this!
Afterwards, the whole valley is a display and we sit late into the night admiring the "big" fireworks.
The red moon last night was a spectacular view, too.
Isn't it pretty?
I'm so tired today, but it is back to work:).
Tomorrow, I will post about how I grow my pumpkins.
I apologize to those of you who read regularly...I promised weeks ago!
But this summer my garden is doing very poorly. Our weather has been tough.
Finally, I have pumpkins that are thriving and I will snap a few pictures to show you tomorrow!!
There is very minimal weeding involved, which is a good thing:).
