Red, White, and Blue

I wake to the sound of rain.  Could this Independence Day celebration be a washout ?

Instead of a morning run, I make an appearance at the gym.  Say hi to a couple of friends right before leaving the gym.

Once back home, the clouds are breaking up, and everyone is awake.

This day in history "In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Continental Congress adopts the Declaration of Independence, which proclaims the independence of the United States of America from Great Britain and its king. The declaration came 442 days after the first volleys of the American Revolution were fired at Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts and marked an ideological expansion of the conflict that would eventually encourage France's intervention on behalf of the Patriots."

Luke and I decide to try the lake since we have left over minnows.  Now it is hot, and the fish are not playing.

Back home for a swim.  The whole family joins in, and some volleyball games are played, crazy dives, and basic chilling out.

Chicken Kabobs for lunch, and then its more pool time....did anyone wait 30 minutes ?

A couple of hours later, it is time for a shower and an iced coffee.

Dinner is a festive event.  The theme is Red, White, and Blue.  All products are local and made in America.  In this case, grown, caught, and sold by local baymen.

We are waiting to digest our dinner before heading to Carvel for dessert.
