the fourth of july started out kind of depressing for me. it was the first fourth away from family and even though i was with my little family it still felt kinda lonely. it was raining the entire day so we didn't go to the parade, and i tried to make it special by cooking breakfast for everyone in the morning.... and ended having to go to walmart four times to make it happen! then we all took a loooooong nap, ate ribs for dinner, and finally made it out to lenox park for fireworks. that's when i finally started feeling patriotic. despite the rain, we were able to have a great time.
got stuck in the car outside of the grocery store for about 30 minutes.
