Happy 4th of July!

So you may be wondering why I'm blogging today instead of fishing on the lake, as was the plan. We got up early and packed up the trusty minivan (the one I swore I'd never have no matter how many children I had to cart around). 

all packed up

Got the cooler, the beach blanket, the towels, the fishing poles, the sunblock, the camera, diapers and other misc baby paraphernalia, the fireworks, and three children all loaded up and then buckled our seatbelts and turned the key.... nothin'. One battery deader than a doornail. 


So while my sweet Jarrod is trying to find a parts store that is open today so he can get a new battery, I am surfin' the internet and consoling children that are worried they are "missing all the fun." I'm sure it will all work out and we'll make it to the lake eventually, but in the mean time, I think I'll dig into this fruit salad I had planned to take to the cabin.

4th of july fruit salad

Hope your day is filled with fireworks, love, and appreciation for the men and women who have served our country, past and present.
