Happy Independence Day!

At least, it was for us. We got up, got dressed, and went to the local pancake house for breakfast. Then it was back home and get dressed for the pool, where we arrived to see a huge line of folks without passes and no line for folks with passes. I knew I liked those season passes...

After we'd been there about an hour, the park hit capacity and no one else was allowed in until more people left. Sometime around 3:30 or so, we decided to let someone else in and headed home, stopping briefly at Dairy Queen on the way. Then it was hang out and relax until it was time to grill the steaks that we'd bought for dinner. Later, daisy_knotwise made strawberry shortcake -- postponed from the night before for lack of Bisquick. (Oops.)

It was a good way to spend the day. :)
