4th of July Fun, Country Style

Sunday July 5, 2009

This year, we headed south to spend our July 4th with Grandma & Grandpa.  It’s been way too long since we got down there, and the kids were dying to spend some time with them in the country.  That, coupled with the long holiday weekend and the fact that it coincides with both of their birthdays, made this trip a no-brainer.

We decided to check out the Natural Bridge on our way down.   We always pass lots of billboards for it, so I was interested in seeing what there was to see.   There are several “attractions” in that area and they try and sell you tickets to bundled attractions to get more of your money.   Since this was just a rest stop on the way to our real destination, we only (over)paid for the Bridge itself.   It’s way too much money for what it is, but we did enjoy it (those of us who weren’t having meltdowns) – it’s very pretty.

Finally, we arrived at Grandma & Grandpas!   We spent the next two days soaking up the country and have a good ole time.   There were tractors to ride, ponds to fish,  gardens to harvest, golf carts to rescue, etc.   We checked out the fireworks display at the nearby town one evening, and shot of our own extravaganza the next.   I could blather on, but I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

Thanks for having us Grandma & Grandpa!
