We stayed around here for the 4th; I'm a sucker for my hometown on Independence Day and if I don't see both a parade and a fireworks display I'll be totally bummed. In between these necessary bookends to our day we had helicopter pool and slip n slide time in the yard, a steamed lobster and chardonnay lunch date in our living room while the kids napped, and a picnic and swim at the lake. Could a summer holiday get any better?

The fireworks here don't start until the end of the baseball game, and it was a long one. Fortunately: we brought good snacks, happened upon my lifelong next door neighbors, and Bob met a friend to run around with. The pups were champs and lasted hours past bedtime, then went right to sleep like little princes. I know there were low points, but going back through the photos it's impossible not to see a perfect day.
