Tim trimming the lilacs and Tessa gathering them so Janice could make bouquets.
I'm digging up hostas and a shot of the weed-free bed.
We finished the day off with a fireworks display on the street right outside our house. Our neighbour puts it on every year. Last year Sam was terrified and this year we knew it was going to happen so we gave him a couple of options. He chose to watch outside and our neighbours even said we could go into their kitchen if it got too loud for Sam. Which it did, so we ended up watching the whole thing through their patio doors. (We wouldn't have had a good vantage point from inside our house so I was thankful they allowed us to use theirs.) Sam found the fireworks less scary this year although he did make me hold my hands over his ears the entire time, which was about half an hour. The fireworks ended right as a major thunderstorm started with impressive thunder and lightning. This meant that Sam did not fall asleep until after 11 so it was a long, but really good, day!
