Happy Monday to you, or should I say Happy Fourth of July eve? I guess it doesn’t really matter either way. What matters is that I’m back in Clearwater and working today, and it kind of sucks. I mean, I don’t mind work so much but going back to it after taking some time off and then knowing you’ll be taking the next day off is kind of a downer. I should have just taken today off too, right? You should too!
Over the weekend MacGyver and I spent as much time as we could with his sister and friend. We did a little fishing, played Mexican Train Dominoes and hit up Tarpon Springs on Saturday.
There are lots of cool things to do in Tarpon Springs but Laura and I were super excited about this opportunity.
It may have been the wine or maybe all the sugar from Hella’s Restaurant and Bakery but afterwards, we girls got a little silly.
Laura took this picture of MacGyver and I which I absolutely love!
I also love this picture of MacGyver and his big sis.
After Tarpon Springs we decided to show the girls what we are lucky enough to get to experience at least once if not twice a week, fireworks! We live by the Threshers stadium and are close enough to hear and see the firework’s display during baseball season every week.
Saturday night we decided to get closer and actually take a drive over to the stadium. What we didn’t realize was that the game would go into overtime and they would end up playing a bazillion innings!
We almost gave up and went home to watch them but I’m so glad we didn’t because…
It was a blast, literally! And we get to see them again tonite! We’ll probably watch them from home though because MacGyver and I have really bad luck on July 4th. We’ve spent 3 of them in Emergency Rooms and a few others with sickness or injury, so we stay home.
Tonight is the annual Kiwanis Midnight Run. I thought about running it, as I thoroughly enjoyed it the last time, but I decided not to. If you live in the area I do recommend it. It’s really incredible to run over the causeway at midnight and the race proceeds go to a great cause.
That’s it for me, I’ve got a few hours of work to get done before another day of vacation.
What are your plans for the fourth?
