Surprise, Surprise!

This 4th of July weekend we have a great time and for my surprise my son revealed the sex of his baby throwing fireworks. The night was perfect for the occasion, clear skies and not too breezy. At 11:30pm we all went to the field excited to see which color would spark in the sky. Our group was around 20 people and only my granddaughter made the comment that she wants a girl all the rest was bidding for a boy. I didn’t make any comment as a grandma I don’t have any preference; however in my heart I felt it would be a little girl. When the fireworks begin and we all saw the pink sparks everyone begin to cheer and jump of excitement.  It was an emotional moment. I hugged my son and I told him he will be an amazing dad. He’s a good son, an amazing brother and uncle. Yes, it’s a girl who will be arriving in the fall and now it’s time to plan a baby shower.

It's a girl!

nice weekend

summer 2

It was an amazing four day weekend at the lake. It was sunny, hot, and muggy. I have covered myself with sunscreen and I still obtain a sunburned all over my neck and my back. The water at the lake was perfect and we all enjoy the boat ride.

I took time to relax and read my book which is a series. I’m reading book 3 “The Good, the Bad, and the Witchy” by Heather Blake (almost done). I also took some time to write a little bit, meanwhile everyone went fishing.

Expending the time with the family and friends was a blessing. My husband was in charge of the BBQ. My son took care of all the drinks and my sister of the fruit salads. I ate and drink too much.

The night was perfect. The temperature drops a little and we have a nice breeze. We have the bonfire; the kids made s’mores and tell scary and funny stories. The three nights we spend at the lake we have fireworks. The night looks lovely and scenic.

After a few peaceful days, I’m back to my routine and with chores to do. In two weeks I will be back at the lake and I can’t wait.
