July 4th Fun
First the garden got a good watering. Hubby took to the vegetable garden, and I to the flower and herb gardens.
With dogs and farm animals vacationing is a bit tricky. I'm glad a few adult kids cold help out.
Hubby surprised us and booked a hotel near a large firework display. We stayed overnight and watched the show from our hotel window. They had music to go along, via the radio station, and we listened and watched from the 6th floor. It was a very nice show.
We took advantage of the hotel amenities. The kids went swimming and in the morning a few of us used the hotel gym. I was one of them.
We also took the kids to a nearby go kart track. This was the largest, and busiest track we've visited so far. I, at my height, had a horrible time getting back out of my car and when I did Hubby was standing, laughing and taking a photo of me. Oh the laughs we had. We played a round of putt putt there as well, as it was included in the cost.
