The 4th was great!
We hung out with family and I met my younger sister who is going to stay with me for a couple of weeks! She's visiting from Cape Town, South Africa!!!
I don't get to see her often (it's been a year and a half) so we have been already having too much fun!
She met Lazarus for the first time yesterday and is in love with him and is taking such amazing photos, which I'll download when I can figure out how to do that from her nice camera!We hosed him off for a good 15 minutes because we are in a high, high heat wave here in Michigan. The next couple of days are supposed to be 94 degrees. Eeeeyuck! Lot's of cooling the pony down.
One thing that happened on our way out of town for the 4th was we witnessed a horrendous car accident, just minutes after it happened before anyone was on the scene. Very scary but everyone is OK
I'm so so so thankful that everyone ended up OK from the accident. When we had to leave (per cops/emt request) we didn't know and things just didn't look good, but someone was looking out for these people.
Read the comments below to see how wonderfully people banded together. My husband's reply is Shell44 fyi. He was so brave during the accident...I had to stand back because I was so afraid of what I could possibly see. When you see a car literally ripped in half, and know there is a little girl in the 2nd half that is thrown in the ditch...I just couldn't. There were people down there with her, otherwise I hope I would find the strength to have gone down there.
Whew...it was a crazy day witnessing that.
It just reminds you how lucky, lucky we are.
I told Billy that we are so lucky to have done everything we did that day, to not put us ahead by two minutes, because that could have been us.
Guess stopping by to see Laz before heading out of town proved to be a great idea.
