Our family had a fantastic long weekend. The fireworks on Monday evening were great, and we all had a spectacular time at the concert beforehand. We spent time at the beach every day, which all the children, but our oldest son just absolutely adored. Through all of the festivities and adventures, I managed to get in 15 miles of walking over the 4 day weekend. I am very pleased with that. I also did not have a single day of over-the-numbers eating, so that is also a very good thing!
My husband and I were not looking particularly forward to his return to work today, but were incredibly thankful for the mini vacation. There is a big family event at the Base this weekend that everyone is looking forward to, though, so it isn't like we were will be lacking for things to do even during the average week.
Our weather has been a bit warm the past few days, but we awoke to a gloriously cool morning made even nicer when I looked out the window to see deer grazing out by the boys' fort. Hope you all have a lovely day.
