This is going to be another busy weekend and I'm kinda looking forward to being busy with things that are not my normal every day occurrence. Last night we had cocktails with friends in their yards, it was another beautiful night for it! We decided that it was Disco Night half way through the evening and turned their drive way into a dance floor, Lord it felt good to dance! The kids thought we lost our minds but hey they will get there someday and instead of a Discotheque it will be a mosh pit! lol
Tonight we are hitting the farmland country and actually going to a county fair! There is to be a carnival, a demolition car race, fire works and plenty of good food and good friends, I think there are 8 other families joining ours there tonight! Rachel will be singing the National Anthem to get the party started there too!
Saturday is "Breakfast by the Lake" brunch and then a favorite uncle of mine is having a not so secret 60th birthday party later in the afternoon, then probably back to the lake for the rest of the night.
Sunday is the "4th of July Pig Roast" at the lake and that party is expected to last until all hours of the night with the potential of a midnight swim in the lake! I am so enjoying the lake! We have so many good friends that are members too, so every weekend is a party there!
Monday is still up in the air but who knows, we might just take our boat onto Lake Michigan and watch the City of Chicago's fireworks display from there. Many years ago we would go to the observation deck in the Sears Tower or as my son used to say when he was around 3 years of age the "Serious Tower" lol and watch the fire works from up there, they would explode right in front of you, it was like you could almost reach out and touch them like the sparks of a sparkler. But soon enough other's caught on to that idea and now you can't get anywhere NEAR the Sears Tower. I also just found out that Country Music Legend Loretta Lynn will be performing at Ribfest on Monday too, so I might be taking Rachel to see her, there are not too many of that generations legends that are still around much less still performing. MY baby-sitter was born and raised in the south, so much of my early music exposure was to bluegrass and I still can't make my foot stop tapping when I hear bluegrass music! lol
I think by Tuesday I might just need to stay home and have a Jammie Day! Whewwwwww!
Until Next time
