Boats and bubbles on the fourth

A low key 4th of July this year for us.


The day started out wet and gray. The June gloom was particularly thick that morning as I waited for the bus.

And since I spent the morning at work, we decided to skip our annual 4th of July BBQ. We’ve also had 5 parties in June alone, which has depleted my bank account and tired me out. We’re not social butterflies, and parties are hard work! So we spent the day doing absolutely nothing spectacular at all, which was fun!

We spent the early afternoon at the Venice Canals, watching the local regatta of wind-powered boats.

Fin decided that he had to walk everywhere. We decided that he had to hold our hands. He often disagreed.

And tired out from walking all afternoon, Fin enjoyed his stroller nap, waking up just in time to get in the car.

We blew bubbles.

And this is how we blow bubbles



Dog perplexed

To stay home with the scardey-cat dog, we skipped the fireworkds, and had some non-traditional tofu hotpot and the Totoro movie to end the day.
