The Fourth of July weekend turned out to be rainy but fun. We needed the showers and it didn't slow things down very much at all. The nieces and nephews swam in the rain. And, they didn't pick the swimming pool-they picked the tank. The girls waded in slowly, their hair put neatly up, gently stepping through the mucky bottom.
The boys took turns diving and pushing each other off the small boat and covering themselves with mud.
20 something year old Handsome continued grazing in the yard-no matter how many times they led him back out into the pasture. He liked the short, mowed lawn. And he didn't mind eating in the rain.
Tank (originally Tiny Tank, but he's not tiny anymore) didn't particularly like sitting in the rain but he was sweet enough to endure it---just to keep us company.
The sun didn't come out all day Saturday. The rain alternated between slow, gentle showers (great for the plants) and hard, flood-producing downpours (great for filling up the tank and creeks). There also was a breeze so the temperature stayed low enough for me to get a little chilled taking pictures of the outdoor activities. Sunday morning though, is starting out still and humid, with the sun breaking through a bit. Later, there will be the Volunteer Fire dept. BBQ fundraiser and then our annual Picnic at church. Sounds like a great 4th of July to me.
