In Early July

Is anyone else totally astounded that yesterday was the 4th of July?? Where the heck is time going??

The 4th of July is a big deal for the Cormack-Clan, it's the birthday of our patriarch, Aiden's great-grandpa and the best pal I ever had.

Being in the middle of the week, I only got the one day off work but it was still really nice to relax with the family on the evening of the 3rd.

Aiden wore himself out playing with Bentley.

And then we went home and splashed in the pool awhile, Aiden makes new friends every time we go :)

After he crashed hard I spent my evening working on Grandpa's birthday card

Then in the morning we went to pay him a visit.

Our wonderful timing put us there they same time as my aunt and cousin from Boulder.

We all had flowers and couldn't fit them all, so I gave the left overs to my OTHER grandpa's pal Johnny Schuck who is conveniently a couple spots over from Grandma and Grandpa.

While we are all hanging around catching up, Randalicious employed a long stick to try and untangle some wind chimes we have hanging above Grandma and Grandpa - didn't work. But guess what did?

Me - climbing on Randalicious' back, nearly breaking it, and scrambling up in the branches to untangle the chimes -- oh the things you do for the ones you love -- especially when spiders are involved!!

That was about the extent of excitement for us -- the 4th just isn't as big of a deal as it used to be.
