Supper: Luke's Birthday Party -- Grilled Burgers, Grilled Hot Dogs, Baked Beans, Oriental Salad, Cupcakes & Ice Cream
Our 4th of July was very low-key this year....
Marc had to work....yep, Mr. Accountant had to work. They were "closing out the books" for the month of June as well as for 2nd quarter.
So, in the morning, Luke and I spent time at my little side job (read "synopsis" of our family at the top of this blog), completing the payroll. Then, Luke and I completed my biweekly task of cleaning our church's nursery's toys -- something I rarely complete on Mondays. It felt nice to have those "things" completed so early in the week.
In the afternoon, we both napped -- which also felt NICE.
After naps, we headed to my brother and sister-in-law's house.
Not only was it the 4th, but it was also our youngest niece's, Maddie's, first birthday!
I didn't take a single photo from the evening -- Shame Shame!
Marc joined us around 7:30ish....he was tired from working ALL DAY!
My brother shot off a few fireworks.
Luke got nervous, and we forgot his earphones to "mute" some of the sound.
I took him inside to play.
We left before their city shot off their fireworks.
Since then, he, on several different occasions, has said, "I cry in Joel's garage. It was loud."
The whole "low-key" day must have worn Luke out, though. The next afternoon, he took a long nap, and I had to wake him up at 5:00 P.M.
And, before you "feel sorry for us" or let out a simple "sigh" because Marc had to work on the 4th....understand that it's O.K.
We're SO grateful for Marc's job.
That's all the more I want to say about that one.
This has apparently become the summer of "repairs in the Friesen household."
Oh my....stay tuned....
Let's just say that Luke is soon going to start thinking that extra people around our home during the day is the "norm."
