The fireworks for Beaumont Days are going off right now. Both of my dogs are growling and barking. I’m afraid that they’re going to wake everyone up! My younger daughter is at the fireworks right now, with a big group of friends from school. I may be getting a call when the fireworks are done to go pick her up. My oldest daughter, my son and my hubby are all sleeping. They have to get up early for work, to be there at 4am – well, not my son, obviously!! Just my daughter and hubby! Happy Father’s Day- get your butt up stupid early and go to work!! When they get home tomorrow, we’re going to my mom and dad’s. they’ve been home for over a week and we haven’t seen them yet!
This morning was the parade. We always sit in the same place, just down the street, across the street on the ring road. We usually sit with our old neighbors, Crandell and her family. When the firefighters arrive (in the parade) we’re always ready for them with a wagon full of water balloons and a bunch of filled up water guns. I usually wuss out and step back a bit, but my hubby, the kids and Crandell (who did all of the water balloons last night) go to town and get into a huge water fight with the fire fighters. They come with balloons and water on their backs and they’re usually ready for us!! It’s so much fun for the kids (& adults, lol). This year so much of the parade seemed to be advertising…which I guess it usually is, there just seemed to be more of it this year. A lot of Plain vehicles, and less floats than normally, also there wasn’t one marching band!! Weird! There were a few horses, like usual. The main thing is that the kids had lots of fun! My son ended up with a huge grocery bag full of candy that was handed out/thrown during the parade! (No phone call yet and I think that the fireworks just ended…)
My darn tummy still felt horrendous today!! So, I missed out on a fun filled day…After the parade, my hubby and the kids went to the fairgrounds. They went on rides and a zip-line and had mini-donuts and a bunch of other stuff. Lucky me, I stayed home sleeping, wishing I felt better!! Oh well, what can you do. At least my family had a good day. It sucks, missing out, but I can’t always control how I feel and, trust me, this isn’t exactly a new lesson for me!! (Oh! My hubby’s phone is ringing…gotta run and get my daughter!)
I’m back! She forgot that she was supposed to call me. She was starving, so we decided to run to the McDonald’s drive thru, since it’s actually open still and it’s fast. Well, that wasn’t fast! It took forever. Apparently we weren’t the only ones with that idea. I don’t think McDonald’s is used to it being busy at this time. They certainly didn’t seem ready for 20 or more cars to show up at the drive-thru all at once! Anyway, I finally got her some food and made it home. I’m going to head for bed now. I’m tired, even though I slept most of the day…weird that I still feel tired! Hopefully I feel better tomorrow!! We’re going to my parent’s house and I won’t be able to sleep for most of the day!! So, I need to get as much rest as possible. So, for now, I’m going to head off to bed!! Night all! 💤😴
