It wasn't necessarily by choice.
You see, I've been a wee bit yucky with a stomach rebellion.
I think I'm finally getting back on track for real.
You see, I thought I was back on track earlier in the week and we spent the morning cutting grass at Mama's on a hot, hot day...
...and I soon found out - not so much.
Today is much better, though, and I am confident that this time the old stomach is going to stay in check!
We did enjoy celebrating Independence Day in a big way, though!
Somehow, I think the real show is probably one that could be best observed if sitting just to the left of the launch area. See the headlights and outline of the pickup truck? I've always wanted to be right about there to watch and listen to the action going on behind the scenes of the the night sky explosions. I'd be willing to bet the scrambling and antics of those fellows lighting up the sky are just as entertaining!
Then, on Monday, I traveled over to celebrate with our other son and his wife's family.
Meanwhile, near the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center, these girls enjoyed another fireworks spectacular! Beach towels on the grass and a fireworks display - does anything else sound more like summertime fun?
