Yesterday marked another birthday for the US of A and another memorable fourth of July for the family Jenkins. We spent the day, as usual, with the Otterlees and friends up in Edmonds — first at the Edmonds July 4 parade and after at the Otterlee house for a barbecue. From there it was back home for a little r&r. Rhonda and the kids watched fireworks that evening at Laurelhurst Park while I convalesced in bed, the victim of yet another upper respiratory infection.

July 4 means parades, fireworks, and my and Reese’s annual picture with my American flag shirt. This year’s rendition:

Another Independence Day is in the books.
We kicked off the day up with the Otterlees at the Edmonds Independence Day parade.
From there we headed back to casa de Otterlee for a good ol’ fashioned backyard barbecue.
After that it was back home for some power napping and meltdowns. From there we wrapped the day up with the Cheuks and Lake Union fireworks at Laurelhurst Park.
Not a bad day if I do say so.
Today we celebrated our nation’s birthday on its calendar day, July 4.
Too bad it felt like mid fall.
After the parade we went back to the Otterlee’s for an afternoon barbecue. It was about 62 degrees. I wore a sweatshirt. It tried to rain. We took no pics. I overate something fierce. Very not p90x.
On the drive home it started raining. It continued to drizzle well into the evening. We skipped watching the fireworks show at the Laurelhurst Beach Club in favor of a warm and comfortable bed. I was tucked in my foot space by 10 pm.
It’s supposed to be 85 and sunny by Tuesday.
I’ll believe it when I see it.
