Sam and I got up and made a frittata (Aubrey a post is coming your way soon), some waffles, and coffee while awaiting the arrival of Josh and B2. They arrived. We chatted. We ate. They met Bennett. We chatted some more. We drank coffee. Josh held Bennett (Yes, it's a big deal). We laughed. We made guacamole. Okay, they made guacamole. I watched. We ate guacamole. We chatted and laughed, chatted and laughed. We hugged. They left. We thanked God for their visit. There are few things I enjoy more than conversation and laughter with friends, especially friends you haven't seen in a while.
After Josh and B2 left we got in the car and were on our way to the Ross's for an evening cookout. Our entire evening was spent indoors due to the rain, but we had a great time anyway. It has been such a blessing to have so many wonderful friends here in Tampa. Tampa has become home to us due to the friends we have made.
No fireworks for us. We are in the phase of life where we just pray the fireworks won't wake our sleeping baby. He stirred a few times, but for the most part he slept right through all of the noise.
I HOPE ALL OF YOU HAD A WONDERFUL JULY 4th!!
I am so thankful for all of the freedoms we experience in our great nation.
