Happy 4th of July to everyone! We had a blast! We had some company over, and we played lots of ladder golf, which we bought on Saturday for the occasion. I love the game, even though everyone gets scared when I throw. I kind of throw fast pitch style… Mike came all the way down from Bemidji and spent the 4th over night with us. It was so great to see him. It was his birthday on the 3rd …. in addition to the 4th, or anniversary on the 15th, and Sue’s birthday at the end of June….. so there was a lot to celebrate! All of our neighbors directly were out of town, so we had the area to ourselves which was nice.
Pam and Phil brought their new puppy Chloe, a chocolate lab whom they got for free because she was born without a tail. She is about 7 weeks here, and simply adorable to the max. I was so lucky because on Thursday my co-worker John brought his new puppy a Golden Retriever who was 9 weeks old, and then got to spend the day with Chloe. We cuddled at the bonfire and she slept on me, so I am definitely getting my puppy fix!
Some of our neighbors and several houses in the area light off very high quality fireworks that you would find at Taste of Minnesota! It was great, and we got to see all of them from the comforts of our own backyard. We could even see ham lake city fireworks from our backyard too. But just the highest ones, but still it was nice to not worry about fighting the crowds etc. Looks like we might be the host sight from now on!
Today – Sunday we kept it pretty low key. Tomorrow we’re back to work!
