Well I have been sick since this last weekend so I wasn't much in the mood to do anything. I have been really sore and have had a fever a lot. It is miserable, I feel like I just got done running a marathon, typing a book and jumping up and down a million times. It is worse in the morning, before my medicine and coffee (Alex doesn't mind it so I just keep drinking it - organic of course). So we missed the parade but Jeff got to go see Transformers with his brother and a friend and then we went to Grandma's house for a barbeque. We left with the intention of putting the boys down for a nap and then coming back but I told Jeff - nope, the boys need their sleep (me too). So he headed back over for a night of danger and explosions. I heard the fireworks all night and the girls were really scared but it is over now. In Florida the fireworks last about a week or two and they are EVERYWHERE!! It is soooo dangerous and obnoxious but the boys (Jeff and his brothers) really love it. You could easily blow $300 on fireworks and get a huge extravaganza or you could go to a show, but where is the danger in that. I told Nick the dangers of fireworks and really hyped it up as being a gun in your hand that will blow limbs off, he wouldn't go near them after that - too bad.
I hope everyone had a good holiday and enjoyed themselves.
