This was the rain we were faced with, leaving work on Friday!
We made a mad dash for it (Stella had the benefit of hiding in
my purse, with a plastic bag around the whole thing, while I got
more drenched than I would have if I had just stepped into the
shower in my clothes!) and of course, the rain cleared up after
we got in the car and made it about a mile up the road!
It was fun though. I'm a firm believer in running through a good
downpour about once a year.
|Not knowing what would be open for lunch on the 4th, we decided a safe bet|
was our favorite sushi place, since they're open pretty much all the time.
|Fireworks! (I promise Stella is in the photo,|
it was just really dark.) We go to my in-laws' house
for fireworks, since there's a country club across
the water that does them every year, and that means
we don't have to worry about parking or crowds.
