Happy Early 4th of July!

I'm here! I haven't fallen off the face of the earth or anything ;) I guess for once I haven't had a lot to say. We're kinda in a Summer lull even though we've done a few things here and there like gone to my hubby's work summer picnic,taken the kids to a couple of playgroup outings, and just general summer hanging out.

Next up 4th of July! I'm still not quite sure what all we're going to do- maybe head out to my family's cabin off the Illinois river. Hang out with some family,do fireworks, have fun! Whatever we do I'm sure it will be better than my worst 4th of July-Let me tell you: When I was working I worked at a business that was never closed-Not even for Christmas! I guess you can tell 1 of the reasons -I decided to be a Stay-at-home mom. I could go on about how our world is so 24/7 ON But, I digress. So, even though I was pretty lucky and got out of working most holidays I did occassionally have to work. A few years ago I had to work a 4th of July and my hubby decided to visit his family and take my daughter-So I missed the fun :( That was bad in itself but, then I was also starting to get a cold. So, finally after I got done working I just wanted to get home and go to bed. But, seriously have you ever tried to sleep early on 4th of July? Yeah-Um Fireworks!! That didn't work out so well. So, that was my worst 4th of July ever. How about you?-Any great 4th of July's? any bad ones? I hope everyone is having a good summer and has a fun 4th of July! And enjoy this video-Yep! You might have guessed that I took it on our vacation/laser show:

Happy 4th of July,Or Canada day, or whatever you may celebrate where you are!!
