Fourth of July Weekend

We were up at the crack of dawn on Saturday to go blueberry picking.  It was nice and cloudy!  

20 lbs. of blueberries

Blueberry picking day tradition:  cobbler for lunch.  And I just happened to have a little bit of ice cream this year.  You can find my Easy Blueberry Cobbler recipe by clicking on the link. 

Our friends came into town for a couple of days and we were fortunate enough to meet up for swimming on Sunday afternoon! 

Yesterday, I had a doctor's appointment.  Afterwards, I met up with a dear friend for ice cream and conversation.  We both had had a trying day and it was exactly what we needed!    Later in the evening, JP did some firecrackers and other minor fireworks with the kids.  I usually stay inside when amateur fireworks are involved.  Vivid memories from childhood when our woods caught on fire from fireworks and the charred mop that someone tried to extinguish it with remain to this day. 

4th of July was a bit different this year.  Usually I try to push us to do what everyone else is doing, but this year we went with the flow.  JP made homemade Haitian chicken and rice with fried plantains for lunch/dinner.  Then, the kids and I went into town to see Despicable Me 3 along with everyone else in our town.  (In that respect, I guess we did follow the crowd.)

If you noticed, JP is missing from most of our fun this weekend.  He is sick with the sinus stuff I am just getting over.  Hoping and praying he gets well soon and the kids stay well since we start school next week.
