5th of July

A good 4th yesterday.  Chores done early, then hit the road.  Nice sidewalk seats for the Chetek Liberty Fest parade, then a long easy afternoon with family and friends and relatives many of whom I hadn’t seen for two decades, kids playing in the water and on haybales and getting rides on Uncle Vern’s horse-drawn wagon.  And finally on the way home a stop off in a town near here for fireworks.  Took a gamble and kept the two-year-old up for it (she loved the boom-bang colors, her older sister likes the whistlers), then we drove home, tucked the chickens in and all slept the sleep of the well-holidayed.  Realized when it was all over that we’d had a family day.
