Three Things

I love long weekends. Especially when they include fireworks! 🙂

So for my three things, I give you these…


A rainbow at the minor league ballpark on Saturday night. It was a full one (which is always cool), but my phone could only capture so much in one shot so here is the rest of it…


Monday night we made s’mores on the fire pit out back…


And on Tuesday (July Fourth, actual), we went to one of the river towns a little ways north of us, and watched fireworks over the Hudson River.  DD # 2 taught us a new card game while we waited…



How was your long weekend? Do you have three things to share with us?

    What a fun weekend! I love rainbows! And smores!
    My weekend was alright…We had a small birthday party for my boyfriend’s daughter. We took her to ToysRUs and let her pick out anything that wasn’t too expensive. She chose a giant stuffed unicorn! It’s pretty cool. Then we went home and had some yummy strawberry cake.
    Sunday, I rested. I also read and worked on my pinwheel quilt.
    I like fireworks but was very tired (I worked Monday and Tuesday) so we did not go see any. I’m spoiled anyways. There’s nothing like the fireworks at Disney World! Those are my favorite.
    Hope you all had a wonderful holiday! Have a nice rest of the week.

    My question too Andrea, lol
    Well it was a weekend full of rain, storms and neighbors shooting off fireworks, so that meant giving Tyler lots of calming stuff and trying to keep him calm.
    They had the big fireworks display here in Nashville last night. And the neighborhood went crazy with tons of them too. Funny thing, last night Tyler was the calmest he had been all weekend. We watched the fireworks on tv, it lasted 35 minutes.
    That was about it from here.
    Sounds like you had a great long weekend Laura.
    Glad you got to work on your quilt Andrea.

    Andrea, I agree on Disney! And I’m not sure of the name. I’ll have to ask her.

    Kay, HUGS to Tyler!

    Really didn’t do much this weekend.
    1. Read
    2. Did some light cleaning
    3. More reading

    Hubby worked early/late on the 4th, once they get to work it’s almost impossible for them to get anyone to come in for the evening because traffic is bad and no parking available by then, they plus side is that they get to go on the roof and watch the fireworks. The youngest worked mid shift and the oldest and I worked in the morning. I went to bed early and played springboard for the cat who would fly off the bed (using me as her starting jumping point) every time a loud fire work would go off in the neighborhood (the neighborhood goes crazy here with them.
