Happy 4th of July!

3 kids in obey treeย We went to our Puzzle House on the other side of Kansas on Saturday after picking up the goofy daughter at her house. This tree was once a stick as high as my waist. I’m short. ๐Ÿ™‚

We were always yelling at them while they were growing up to stay out of the tree because it could not hold them. Well, the last few years it has really shot up there and can now hold them. ๐Ÿ™‚ Amazing.

Missing the oldest son, he is in the Navy and came home a week ago but had to go back.

The three lit off some fireworks after helping us with yard work and cleaning up some stuff at our grandma’s house down the street. So we have 3 houses in total to take care of. We enjoy it, just wish more time and more money to do the maintenance the way we want to. Little by little.

Came back on Sunday and I took the daughter and youngest to the Bret Michaels concert in the park. Free! ย Terrific concert! The kids enjoyed it.

They are now down at the carnival again. Hubby and I will venture down closer to firework show time. ๐Ÿ™‚

That has been our 4th of July celebration. Simple, fun, and full of family time. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope everyone has had fun and stay safe! Cheers to freedom! ๐Ÿ™‚

365 Questions 5 Years 1,825 Answers…Journal Away

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this when I began this blog, but now a bright light has went off in my head. Unbelievable uh. ๐Ÿ™‚ I bought a neat 5 Year Journal last year that asks question everyday of the year for 5 years. It is neat now to see what I wrote last year compared to this year. I have to admit I didn’t always remember to write on that day last year. I sometimes had to go back and remember or think of something. I will try harder to remember this next half of a year. Wow, half the year is gone already.

Of course, I won’t do it everyday and blog down your emails or screen but maybe keep with my weekly blog.

I bought it thinking it might give me some writing material. I was thinking more of for my novels but hey this works. It is like having a daily prompt!
