07/05/10 - 4th of July Celebration 2010
I really missed Joey and Johnny yesterday. I wasn't sure if I could go hang out with the usual crew or not, but I figured it was the right thing to do to give it a try. At first I didn't want to take my camera out of the case, but then somebody did something that caught my eye, and I got it out. The rest is pretty much history. "MeMe, take my picture..." There is something definitely healing about looking at the world through my camera lens.
We hung out longer than usual, and the kids behaved great, and fun was had by all.
The shot in the middle is a little lighthearted humor about how the popsicles we all enjoyed turned everyone's tongue a different color:-) Not your average group shot!
A super big thanks to these great friends for reaching out to me yesterday when otherwise I'm sure I would have sat home and sulked. Nothing can replace the lost memories the boys and I would have created if we'd all been together, but I'm sure there will be other great memories with our community family in the future. The boys are having a lot of fun where they are this week, but I'm having a hard time dealing with the fact that there will be more forced times apart and lost memories.
At the end of the day, we had a fox come visit some of the party scraps we had thrown out in the woods. I thought at 10:30 at night I didn't need my camera anymore and didn't it have it handy:-( Got to see him lit up with a flashlight, though, and that was really neat.
Thanks for all your kind comments on my web shot from yesterday...
