At the end of June, we took some time off from work to go visit my parents in Vermont. It was a delightful time. We had been having a heat wave here, and their weather was so comfortable. Better than the weather was the time with all of the family. We were able to rest, love on the nieces and nephew, weed-wack, and visit lots!
We got back from Vermont in time to celebrate Independence Day at home, just the two of us. We ate well and found an amazing spot to watch the fireworks. We drove the Mountaineer, and put the back seats down. Since we got there early, we opened up the back hatch and played Phase 10 in the back. The weather was breezy. The fireworks were spectacular!
The celebrations continued as my mister spoiled me for my birthday. Food related, he made me waffles for breakfast before work (I leave for work about 6:10am), bang bang shrimp for dinner, and a frozen peanut butter cheesecake for dessert. He worked hard, and we enjoyed the fruits of his labors. The spoiling continued with his giving me a market bag and new cricut cartridge, both things I had been wanting!
Yesterday, we took a day trip to meet up with the mister's parents at the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro. We had a blast. The weather was amazing, and so many of the animals put on a show for their small audience by coming close to the fence. Of the many exhibits we walked around to, we only missed getting to see the red fox. We figure he was hiding behind one of the rocks. Overall, the day was a spectacular success!
We saw these sweet fawns as we were walking one of the paths. They were not in a cage. After seeing them, we saw this poem posted on the side of the path.
While we have been having a blast, we feel a bit like this polar bear that we saw yesterday...absolutely exhausted. Despite how tired we may be, we have enjoyed adventuring through life together.
