We had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. On Friday we walked around Mackinaw city with my parents. It was a glorious day, not a cloud in the sky! In the evening we all went to the lakefront to watch the fireworks. Ana was so excited, but it was a LONG wait till it got dark. She loved them, then said they were "too loud for kids". She didn't like the ones with the HUGE BOOM. Those are my favorite! When leaving, it took us a half hour just to move about a foot out of our parking spot. There were so many cars all trying to leave at the same time. If we go back next year, we will definetly park in a different place. We didn't end up getting out of town for an hour!! The gas prices didn't seem to affect the turnout either, it was packed up there!!
On Saturday our friends Brandon, Becky, Michelle & Ted came over for a campfire. The conversation and of course, the smores were wonderful!! Sunday, we had a nice relaxing day around the house to ready us for the coming week. It was a beautiful day so we took all the pups for a walk to "soup pond". It is really just a huge mud hole that looks like pea soup. The pups and Ana thought it was great. Ana actually wanted to swim in it- yuck! All in all, it was a great weekend.
