Rain Won't Stop Us

Howdy friends!

I don't know about you, but I'm DRAGGING myself this morning.  Yes, this always happens after a three day weekend but that doesn't mean I can't complain about it.  I honestly don't know how I made it out of the house this morning and made it to work.  You know those moments when you are driving and all of a sudden you are at your destination but have no idea how you even got there because you can't recall?  Yeah, that was me this morning.  Also, it's 9:50am and I have yet to do anything super productive at work.  The great thing about a long holiday weekend is all the fun we try to jam pack into three days.

Saturday, we went to my mom's for a family BBQ...  There was tons of food and alcohol.  And drinking with my family is like feeling as if we were all 21 again.  Lots to drink and LOTS of laughter.  Cheers to that!

Sunday we went to my brother's house for an impromptu BBQ he planned and let me tell you, Sophia had such a great time playing with her cousins.  It was so nice to see them running around playing with the tennis balls and soccer ball.  Of course we ate tons of good food and ended it watching a movie.

Then yesterday I really wanted to see fireworks.  We had a time we were going to head out and I was getting out of the shower when hubs tells me it's suppose to start raining at 8 which is the time we were going to head out.  We decided to chance it and head out.  After looking for parking for 10 minutes, we finally found a spot and grab our lawn chairs and started walking to the high school with Sophia in her stroller. Once we walked over and settled on a spot, we felt the rain drops coming.  It was about 8:05 at this point... then the rain started coming down even harder.  Thankfully I grabbed two ponchos and a sweater.  We wore the ponchos while I put the sweater over Sophia's legs in the stroller.  She was dry the whole time, us... not so much.  But because of the rain, our town decided that fireworks were going to start early.  So at 8:30 the fireworks went off and we sat there in the rain and enjoyed a nice night out.  Anyways, a little rain doesn't hurt anyone.  There was no thunder or lightening so we were safe to stay out.

Sophia enjoyed the fireworks for a good 10 minutes before she started to say no more. LOL

Hubs and I looked REALLY COOL in our ponchos.

We made the best of our night.  Watching fireworks in the rain was a fun experience and a good story we will always remember.

How did you enjoy your holiday weekend?
