Happy Birthday USA and Happy 7th Birthday to Kat!
Since Shane did not have to work this weekend after all, we celebrated Kat's birthday yesterday, along with my daughter and son-in-law (Kat's mom and step-dad). In order to get everything in, we did things in a mixed-up order...gifts first, then lunch at a Chinese Buffet, followed by bowling and a few arcade games, then back home for birthday cake.
Afterward, Kat left to spend the rest of the weekend with her mom, while Shane and I went to his mom's and step-dad's house for our evening meal. We ended the night with an oh-so-exciting trip to Wal-Mart, where we tried to navigate their remodeling confusion and where Shane bought himself another dorky hat.
Today we are planting the plants we bought yesterday, making pickles, and will have a quiet supper at home. It looks like rain this afternoon and evening, so I doubt we even attempt to take in any fireworks displays.
Hope all of you are having a happy holiday and/or great weekend in general.
