My beautiful sister (only one) is twelve years younger than me, so I have been enjoying her young ones, and especially this little handsome devil. Rocking, diaper changing, snuggling... all in the Auntie Kazzy repertoire.
It was a good day of swimming and BBQing, again, and I enjoyed more time with the extended family. The fireworks at night were very elaborate, as it seems most men on the block spent a small fortune on the "good stuff". The only mishap was when Tom, down the street, lit a multi-fused mortar which tipped over and shot right up against the house across the street, exploding. Nobody was hurt, and no property damage could be seen, so all was well.
Tomorrow, since my kids are staying at their cousins' for a few days, my parents are taking us to the Blue Ridge Restaurant where we will each eat our own weight in crabs.
