I hope everyone had a great weekend!
Our 100th 4th of July Parade was just FABULOUS!
Here are some pictures...
First here is Pumpkin in her special car, which ended up not being a convertible due to an early drizzle, and while reading her award winning poem at the parade closing ceremonies:
Next, here is Hammer, with the flag, in center waving at me, and the next picture is of Fuzzy and Mish. Fuzzy with glasses and David Cassidy 'I Think I Love You' hair. LOL
Yep. I spared dear Hubby from being pictured this year!
Kathy and my sweet nephew J came up to watch this special parade! After the ceremony at the end, lots of people came up to Pumpkin and congratulated her on her poem and commented on how it was well-written! Some were people that we knew, but a lot of people that were complete strangers came up to Pumpkin, and she was loving her moment of 'celebrity'!
Pumpkin went home with Aunt Kathy on Friday, and J was so thrilled! I have never seen him leave our house so easily!!! He was very happy to have his Pumpkin in tow!
Saturday afternoon Hubby, the boys and I went skeet shooting! Actually, only Fuzzy did the shooting, but it was very fun to watch! I had never seen him do it before. Hammer found it to be painfully loud and hung back, after watching his brother hit one or two. Fuzzy ended up with a respectable 16 of 25 clay pigeons downed!
Fuzzy also decided that he wants to join their fall league! I am happy when the boys find something that they enjoy so much that they want to get into it more!
Then we went to the famous The Hot Grill restaurant for dinner! Yummy! Dogs all the way! Fries with cheese and gravy! Yummy!
Yesterday was mostly relaxing around the house, although we did go out to Borders Books for a while and pick up the boys Merit Badge books that they need for Boy Scout camp.
Today, we drove down the Garden State Parkway to Kathy's! We had a nice visit. The kids swam for a couple of hours, then had a nice lunch treat of Wendy's (thanks, Kath!).
The house was so quiet without my Pumpkin, but I really missed her, so it was nice to get there and get my huggies and kisses, too!
Unfortunately, we needed to leave earlier than I would normally have left because Hubby messed up his doctor appointment today. He showed up at 8:30am today, and his appointment was 8:30am tomorrow. Ack.
He couldn't come back again tomorrow, and go to work late two days in a row, so he had to get back there later today at 4pm, and preferred to have our car to do it. Men.
This is a tight week because the boys are leaving for Boy Scout Camp on Sunday. Hubby needed to have his doc appointment for his physical and camp papers, and the boys have theirs on Thursday afternoon. I have my rheumatologist appointment on Thursday morning, which makes it a real whammy of a day! LOL
Pumpkin is also having her physical and about 4 shots on Thursday. Yep... should be loads of fun! NOT!
However, let's not get ahead of ourselves! After all, tomorrow is just Tuesday! Let's see... just a sleepover of one of Pumpkin's friends so far... more could be added! You never know!
It is summer time after all!
