Tired Tuesday

After a fun filled, busy weekend... it's hard to believe that it's already Tuesday.


We over-indulged...

Enjoyed a carnival both from great heights...

and with our feet firmly planted on the ground...

The people watching is always fun...


Of course, we still had more fun to pack in yesterday...

A car show...


Parade...


Tractor rides for the kiddos...


We never even made it to fireworks. Everyone was tired, sweaty and slightly sunburned. A shower and bed sounded like the best option.









This morning the kids and I took my mom out to visit my dad's grave. He would have been 84 today. We left red, white & blue flowers and placed little stones on his marker. I think it would have made him very happy. He always said he was a late firecracker.  He always treated the 4th of July as part of his birthday celebration too. Time for family, friends and fun. Makes me happy to think of it as that way as well.

Hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday weekend!  I think I need a nap now!

Stop by Kimmies blog to see what's up with my Tea Tuesday friends this week....

Enjoyed sharing the fun day at the carnival with you. It sounds like fun, but would have been too hot here to last very long.

Also enjoyed reading about your dad and his firecracker joke. Sounds like a great morning for you, the kids, and your mom.

I love your snapshots of our all American holiday .... In your very all American town :) .... It looks like a place that Norman Rockwell would have used in his paintings. It sounds like it was a very special day for your entire family.

Happy tea day ... xoxo, kimmie

Isn't it too bad that those darn fireworks have to start so late?! LOL...we usually poop out by then too. I'm glad you have happy July 4th/birthday memories of your Dad.
