Happy 4th of July!

The weather here in the mid-Atlantic is just lovely, cool nights, warm days, no rain. Not usual July weather for these parts. Yesterday Gerry and our barn buddy E. and I had a terrific trail ride, I especially like the long stretches through the woods with the more technical stuff like little bridges and creeks to cross and logs to step over.

This morning was all about gardening and we got the front garden pruned and weeded and in the back removed one of the ornamental grasses to better show off my hydrangea's. Must get some photos up of them.

No riding today, we are off this pm to near Baltimore for a family event and then late this evening to a friend's house for a party and watch fireworks. I've made my in(famous) Bourbon Slush’s to take along with miniature cinnamon roll with cream cheese frosting and a toasted pecan on top (semi-homemade.)
Today's photo was taken in Estes Park, CO. My grandparents had a huge cabin there (three bedrooms downstairs and a huge dorm upstairs for all the grandkids.) Every summer we would drive out from Illinois to spend a couple of weeks there- my all time happiest summer memories. I've been working with a lot of my old family photos lately and this one made me think 4th of July, family, and good thoughts.

A happy and safe holiday to one and all.
