Despite the incredible heat, we had a wonderful 4th of July holiday!
It is a yearly family reunion. My husband's parents and mine, along with my younger brother and his family, join us at my 90 year old grandpa's cottage. It's so nice that we all get along together and can simply enjoy one another's company.
The kids had a great time fishing, swimming, playing with their cousins, and eating lots of ice cream sandwiches. A few of them always get together and put on some kind of performance. This year they sang America the Beautiful and my son read the Preamble to the Constitution. It was adorable. :)
My husband and I enjoyed sitting on the porch talking, reading, and having "who can stay on the float" contests in the water with the kids. I think my husband won most of the time.

It has taken me a little while to get back to reality though, I think my brain may have melted in the 99 degree heat! Thanks so much for all the great comments on my IWSG post. I'll try to get to all of you as soon as possible.
What did you do over the holiday?
