The second week of Grandma Genie's visit included July 4th on Thursday. It was kind of an odd day of the week for a holiday, but it was nice the way it broke up the week and we decided we would take the opportunity to go the beach and have some fun. In the afternoon we went over to the Fishman house for a BBQ. The kids played soccer out back, which Connor has been enjoying lately, and then they swam in the pool until the food was ready.
We all loved Remy the new Fishman puppy dog!
In the evening, we went to the beach club, where the Fishmans had a tent setup. The kids ran around in the sand for a while and we went through about a hundred sparklers.
It was a wonderful, cool, enjoyable evening at the beach. We could see the Jax Beach fireworks from our spot and the locals on the beach shot off a very impressive variety as well, some closer than we would have really liked.
