Weekending : July 4th Edition!

We had an extra long Fourth of July weekend. I spent the majority of it recovering from last Wednesday’s oral surgery. Surgery went well and although I was quite out of it for a day or two and then in some pain for days after that, but my mouth has been feeling better every day. Even though I was in some pain for the actual fourth, we still managed to walk in our town’s push em pull em parade and enjoy the street fair for a little bit (We had Gramma and Grandpa with us too). Then the rest of the weekend was spent resting. Lots of time in the backyard, tending to the garden, running around with flags, declaring our independence and eating lots of watermelon!

The long weekend started out fun. We went downtown and met my parents, to see the Fourth of July parade and street fair. There were a ton of people but it was fun getting out and seeing all that red, white and blue. But, by the time we got home, Jeff had come down with the dreaded bug that Ellie and I are still recuperating from. He got hit hard and was down for the rest of the weekend. Ellie and I stayed up into the wee hours that July 4th (local fireworks and her coughing kept her up) and Daddy went to sleep very early. We left Jeff to rest up for part of the weekend and went down to visit with my parents at their place (which we don’t do very often because Ellie still is not a fan of car rides). It was a nice day for Ellie. She just loves spending time with her grandparents (and I don’t think they are too bad either). We went out to lunch, we took a long walk and we visited the bookstore. The rest of the weekend was spent cleaning, doing laundry , a little gardening here and there and just lazing about, trying to get everyone healthy again. How was your weekend?
