Summer Starts

Summer has officially started in the Davis household. The family went to the ring of fire on the lake on the 3rd. Hung at Grandpa's house and watched the locals' fireworks. Even set off a few of our own this year thanks to Uncle Rob & Aunt Shana.

Last night we went to the city to see the real deal. We waited 3 1/2 hours to see 17 minutes of fireworks. They were beautiful if not short this year. I think it may have had something to do with the thunder, lightening and pouring rain. It started about 40 minutes before the big event. We ended up watching from the van.

So, 2 nights in a row of the kids being up until 11:30. They are handling it well. We'll see how tonight goes.

This morning I had to wake Dylan up for Theater camp. Whoever thought 8:30 in the morning was a good time to have a camp doesn't have more than one child. Luckily, Jeff was home. He and Tyler are off to Boy Scout camp. 4 days and 3 nights. They left almost 2 hours ago and Alex is lost already. The children are hanging about me like wet laundry. Damp and heavy and stuck to me like wet fabric. Ugh!

I must go shake them off now and make them lunch...
