How was your 4th, folks? We went to the fireworks. Before they started I took a sky shot. My camera really didn't catch the strips of pink in the gray clouds.
After it got dark it was time for the show. The fireworks were definitely better than my pictures of them.
Then out for ice cream. Even though it was Saturday and a holiday it was after ten and yes the ice cream store was closed. Sigh. Sooo we went to the grocery store to buy ice cream.
Has anyone ever bought Halo Top? Let me just say I'm made my first and last foray in that direction. It's got the consistency of blue cheese: very crumbly. I later found out its best to let it sit a bit before eating to improve the consistency. Oh well. I made a mess just trying to get it into a cone. After that disappointment I hauled myself off to bed to later be awakened by neighborhood fireworks. The critters weren't any happier than I was as they all vied to get under the desk. The only one unphased was the HH who has a hearing problem:) My son has mentioned on more than one occasion that being unable to hear well can sometimes be a blessing. (Speaking from the perspective of someone with three children, a cat and a dog:)
I'm pleased to announce we all survived the night:)
THEN Monday the twins spent a couple of hours with us, which was grand.
We got some much needed rain last week.
More hydrangea pics.
Two bushes. Two different shades of blue.
What about you blogger buds? Was your weekend and Monday wondrous? Got hydrangeas?
