I know I shouldn't be surprised, living in the Northwest and all, but it was cold and rainy here on the 4th! We didn't let that stop us though! We loaded up our hiking backpacks with blankets, coats, and food, and walked on down to the waterfront park with some friends. Lucy joined us of course! We had a delightful picnic with cherries from the trees in our yard, homemade bread, fresh sugar snap peas, chocolate, cheese, and chips.
Lucy got to meet lots of new people, play with a couple of puppies, and see some fireworks. We were a little worried about how she would do with fireworks. We shouldn't have been. When the sun started to go down, she got cold. And, true to form, she hid under the blankets sound asleep and warm. This is her gracing us with her acknowlegement.
I guess I shouldn't have been too suprised, I was pretty cold myself. Very glad for the tank top, t-shirt, fleece, ski-coat with hood, hat, gloves, and blankets.
But it was good food, good company, and we saw a good sunset before the fireworks started.
Happy late 4th of July!
