Not much to do in my neck of the woods. Reply torijohnson5 07/03/2012 Very welcome! I appreciate you stopping by! Reply Sleeping Should Be Easy 07/03/2012 Thanks for reminding me that I need to look for some local activities for tomorrow! We’ll be watching fireworks from our patio, but we still need stuff to do during the day. Hope you guys have a great holiday! Reply torijohnson5 07/03/2012 I hope you have a wonderful 4th as well! Was hoping to take Luke to a firework show but most shows have been canceled in San Antonio because we don’t have enough rain. Shucks!
