You know those country songs that make you nostalgic for community and the good ol’ days? Visions of a white gazebo in the town square, flags flying, neighbors dishing out homemade ice cream. My life was that country song over the holiday weekend!
Sno cones at the park.
The dirt had to go somewhere when they dug the mud volleyball pits!
Watching the parade with my snackin’ buddy.
Antique tractors sputtering along, sign of days gone by.
“Grandpa” saw my kiddos playing on the playground and asked them if they would “help him out” and ride in the parade. Why yes, they would!
Wheelbarrow races on crunchy grass. (Please God, bring the rain!)
Ready to “throw candy at people” at the second parade of the weekend.
And she enjoyed every minute of it!
Three days. Late nights. Mud volleyball. Softball. Hamburger feed. Homemade ice cream and cake decorating. Water games. Other games. Two parades. Fireworks. Hotdog cookout. Patriotic songs blaring over main street sound systems. Friends. Busyness. Bliss.
A Finer Things weekend, for sure!
