Instead of going to Mass today, we went last night before the fireworks since our church is in the area of all the festivities. Tom and Brian brought a change of clothing so they wouldn’t have to wear their dress clothes to the fireworks.
Before the fireworks started, we sat down by the shoreline while Brian ate his funnel cake and drank his smoothie.
Then Brian wanted some fried ‘gator (alligator). Let me tell you, HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO EATS IT IN THIS FAMILY. I tried it once and didn’t quite acquire the taste for gator meat.
While Brian was eating his ‘gator, a cute Airedale came up to him and was quite interested in Brian’s food.
The cloud in this picture looks like, to me, a nose. 😆
There were many boats along the shore that docked to see the fireworks. The water you see is the St. Mary’s River/Atlantic Ocean. We live on the seacoast. I have always lived on the Atlantic seacoast.
We had a great time!
And, today we went down to Carrie’s. Her and her hubby had a cookout. They grilled pork and beef rib, and chicken. Carrie made an apple pie, potato salad, macaroni salad. We had corn on the cob, baked beans, watermelon, strawberries, cheese and crackers, and cream cheese with pepper jelly and crackers. Everything was delicious. They went all out for us. I had a fantastic time. I enjoyed myself because I didn’t have to do any cooking and hang around the kitchen. Carrie and her hubby did it all.
This morning, before we went down to Carrie’s, Tom did all the laundry here. When I awoke I could hear the washing a drying going. What a big help that was for me. I really appreciated that also.
I am so grateful for everything my family did for me this weekend.
