Happy 4th of July! Last night, after eating at a Chinese buffet in Lacey, we ended up at Office Depot. We were about to leave when suddenly a mass influx of people descended in the parking lot. It turned out that a fireworks show was happening that evening and the Office Depot parking lot was the prime place to watch it from. So, since we had a nice parking spot…we stayed. Orion liked the fireworks from the quietness of the minivan. Ollie slept through it all.
The next morning it was officially the 4th of July and we packed a picnic and went to the Benson Lake cabin. It was about 85 degrees out with perfect blue skies. We put on our swimsuits and hit the lake. Orion enjoyed swimming around in his new blow-up toy which he called his “police car”. Mommy enjoyed swimming. Ollie enjoyed sleeping. And Daddy enjoyed taking the boat out on the lake.
We returned home in time to grill hot dogs and hang out by the sandbox. It was a nice, relaxing day.
