Fourth of July

Elijah and I spent most of the day around the house being lazy. It rained most of the morning, so it was the perfect day to not do a thing. I had a fleeting thought about going to Corning to partake in the annual fourth of july festivities...that was short lived. I worked on getting some yard sale stuff together and Elijah watched Teen Titans. Mainly, I read my book and tried to enjoy a day without any pressing obligations.

This afternoon we went with Mom to help pick out paint for her living room and kitchen. My step brother and sister recently moved out of mom's house. She decided she wanted to paint before fixing the two spare rooms back up. We began on what will now be Elijah and Kiley's playroom. I really like how it turned out.

We shot off a few fireworks before we headed in town to watch the FreedomFest fireworks at the fairgrounds. When we got back home, we spent another hour outside watching the rest of the fireworks Papa bought. Elijah has been obsessed with smoke bombs this year. I couldn't be happier, since that is one of the more non-threatening fireworks.
