Our Fourth of July Came A Little Early

by Dagmar Bleasdale on July 1, 2012

My mother-in-law took Landon to the pool yesterday and I had half an hour to sit at Starbucks and actually read a magazine.

It was a Martha Stewart Living magazine from 2008 I picked up at the library, and it just happened to cover decorating ideas for 4th of July.

Our town held their 4th of July celebration and big fireworks show this weekend. And we participated in the 5K run and 1K family walk in honor of a local mom on Saturday. Don ran the race and L and I walked.

It was still pretty hot from the day before, but we had a great time.

Landon ran like a champ with the other kids and was so hot when we got to the finish.

Friends. We met up with Landon’s “sisters” (now girlfriends) after the race.


I love this picture of the kids in front of the huge flag.

The nice fireman took the time to show the kids the fire engine and answer all of their questions about the ambulance. That never gets old.

In the evening, Landon and I watched the fireworks.
