They had a celebration for the patients at the nursing home on the 2nd with hot dogs, chips, watermelon, and root beer floats. We could either have tea or lemonade to drink. We were going to watch from hubby's room, but they parked the ambulance in front of it so we went outside. They had a nice about 40 minute firework show plus other entertainment. I think my favorite part was when they retired the flag and raised the new one. The folding ceremony of the old flag was impressive.
I got to be chauffeured over the weekend which was enjoyable just to sit back and watch the scenery. I got my yard cut yesterday. My grandson wanted to know if I wanted to see about baling it. It was getting tall, but when they planned on mowing it we got a pour down rain. We have flooding in the low lying areas across town from all of the rain plus what they are releasing from the dam up north. I don't know how much rain we got. I just know it came fast and furious with small hail and you couldn't see the house across my driveway.
The outdoor wedding that we went to on Saturday you couldn't ask for a better day. It poured down rain here, but they had sunshine down at Excelsior Springs. It was at the Elms if you have heard of it. It was the first time I have ever been there. The reception was inside with a buffet dinner. My daughter and I had a wonderful time and the bride was so pretty. We could have gone to the brunch on Sunday with the family. The girls skating together along time ago.
The next two weeks I will be taking my grandson to the college. His brother is going to see the physical therapist this week. They have waited for quite a while since there is such a shortage in the kind of therapy that he needs with his hearing problem. They have to take him to Children Mercy in Kansas City or Lincoln, Nebraska. It is closer to go to Kansas City. They have found if he gets to tired he gets sick. He keeps his trash can close to his bed. You have to love him with his independence that he shows. He knows what he can and can't do. It doesn't really slow him down. He still goes 90 miles a hour or so it seems.
After the fireworks was over, my youngest grandson wanted everyone to go home because he wanted to go to bed. The boys enjoyed shooting off their fireworks. Some was still shooting them off last night, but not as late.
Hope all of you had a safe holiday and enjoy the week. Take care.
