Sadie and Jimmy went to the Fourth of July parade on Monday and had such a nice time! I stayed home and blew through a box or two of tissues. The cold that Sadie passed on to me is kicking my butt 😆
Thankfully it’s just a case of the summer sniffles and nothing serious. I’m hoping it doesn’t turn into a sinus infection, since I always seem to get them when I catch a cold 🙈
I think all the fun combined with the heat wore Sadie girl out. When she and Jimmy arrived home in the afternoon, Sadie promptly laid on the couch and slept for an hour or two!
Once everyone was rested, we spent the afternoon relaxing together! Forts were built, archery was practiced, Easy Bake Oven cookies were baked, dinner was eaten outside, and Niva was walked. It was perfect!
Like my outfit for shooting my recurve bow? Doesn’t everyone wear a dress to practice archery?! 😂
After we all bathed and got Sadie in her pajamas, it was time for a bonfire and some fireworks! Jimmy had bought a few to light off, our neighbor gave us some that she wasn’t going to use, and then we planned to watch our town’s fireworks show from our backyard.
Sadie’s excitement for fireworks was through the roof! Jimmy would light a firework and Sadie had us all stand by him while she counted, then we would run to our seats to watch it once it was lit.
Niva joined in on the little fireworks routine of lighting them and running to watch and was so interested in the process. It was cute to see her watch them. She liked them *almost* as much as Sadie!
We stayed up past 10 pm (so, like two hours past my bedtime 😜) to watch our town’s fireworks show and Sadie was so confused as to who was lighting off the fireworks and from where. I love how curious she is! I also love when Jimmy is around to help me explain things to her 😉
It’s now Tuesday as I type up this post and the late bedtime + gloomy weather today + sniffles that woke me up at 4:30 am = a hot coffee kind of day!
The bonus of waking up way too early was that I was able to spend extra time reading my Bible, got to see Jimmy off to work, and started working on Etsy orders that I needed to ship out.
