A Squidly July 4th

For this year's 4th we put our own spin on patriotism. We rode our bikes and had a picnic breakfast at the Harlem Fairway ...
Mike and Little Squid continued learning how to play a symbol of American folk music ...

We all got excited at the prospect of a fire works barge visible from our apartment ...
Mama played her Little Sis in Wii tennis ... (finally, someone I can beat!)
We watched a lovely sunset as the barge floated in and out of view ...

And finally, we enjoyed a spectacular fireworks display on the Hudson River.

(There was also some shopping (Mama Squid, Little Sis, Squidette and Grandma Squid), some show-going (Grandpa Squid and Little Squid) and some computer repair (Papa Squid). All in all, a good day!

Did PapaSquid get to have any fun? Or was it all music lessons and computer repair? ;^)

Looks and sounds like a wonderful day!

Sounds like lots of fun! my mom would love to come listen to everyone practice the new stringed instrument. She LOVES it. I haven't listened to it in years and only didn't like it because she loved it. ;) (I was, at times, a typical teenager) Glad to hear you had a wonderful day!
