Happy Fourth of July!

Its a 3 day weekend, and it seems wild! Friday we spent the day puttering around doing all the things we'd normally do on a Saturday. We all went and saw Wall-E at the theater in the late afternoon, and then went out to dinner. It was a great movie and we had a lot of fun.
After dinner we came home anbd did a few things here before heading over to campus. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, the 2008 Olympic Track Trials are happening in our town. If you turn on NBC tonight or tomorrow night you can see our school. Anyway, as part of the events, they shot off fireworks after the men's 10,000 meter. We parked in employee parking an walked onto campus. We ended up climbing the outside steps to the student union to watch the fireworks. It was really great.
Tonight we are going to set off our own fireworks. Today we have put away berries in the freezer and I've refinished the teak on 'Dory' the boat. Tomorrow I hope to wash and wax it with the kids help.
Overall things are going well. I'll post pictures of the boat as we get it fixed up. It really doesn't 'need' much anyway, but its fun to bring it back to its beginnings and make it pretty again.

You guys look like you're having a terrific summer. The kids are gorgeous as ever, and getting so big too!

We enjoyed Wall-e too. Seems like people either love it or hate middle ground! Sounds like your summer is going well so far!
