That Was the 4th

The Fourth of July weekend went quite well for us.

Jenny continues to mend. Yay, Jenny. She's sleeping better all the time and needing few pain meds.

Quite a bit of swimming was had. In addition to a swim meet on Saturday morning, I took my daughter swimming on a daily basis. When no one else is around the pool, I am required to swim with her, even if she isn't playing with me. Miss Dash also acted as my swim coach, making me swim ten laps. Lordy, I was tired at the end of all that swimming.

For fireworks, we went up to a local park to watch the college fireworks. It was an OK location, looking south to the festivities which rose above the treeline. The park was sparsely populated, the weather a bit cool (amazing for July), and everything was just relaxed. We picnicked on fried chicken and watermelon. The best part was getting out of there. We avoided most of the slog, only having to crawl down one well moving road.

For some reason, my daughter was in daddy-attachment-mode. Hitting the reset button did no good. I spent most of my Saturday entertaining her. I was grateful as all heck on Sunday when my wife arranged a playdate.
