This year we spend Friday night at Grandma Choo Choo's. While she was gone in sunny CA, the Story family and the Kirk family decided to have a staycation together. We met Uncle Tim and Aunt Christine in the late afternoon and hung out, cooked out, and enjoyed the Towanda festivities. Sleeping arrangements were arranged: Emmy and Fiona with Uncle Tim and Aunt Christine in their camper; Michael and Derek in the tent; Peris and Ella with me in the house (no my friends I am not an outdoorsy kind of gal/Mom-and PS, there is NO air in my Mom's house which constitutes roughing it in my opinion!!!). We all got to bed late and had a really great night!! Unfortunately Mother Nature had other plans for the 4th-we woke up to really heavy rain which continued ALL day. Thank goodness for those moblie weather programs where people can check the forecast via their phones. We knew that the doppler radar was showing rain for the entire day. The kids got their candy regardless and Michael got to ride with Uncle Tim and Uncle Tom to throw candy. We spent Saturday night with Tim and Christine again and then went to the postponed cookout at my Dads on Sunday.
It was a busy, but fun, weekend!!!
