I’m Way too Old to Stay up till Midnight!!!

This morning’s 43 was nice because even though it worked my arms and upper back a little, and it was  a nice stretch (which felt good after a week full of lots of plank work!!).

I just did a lying pull-over with a dumbbell (15 pound).

I tried to keep all 43 at a nice steady pace so there wasn’t any jerking.  This move really did feel pretty good through my shoulders and upper back (plus, I will take all the work I can get on my triceps!!).

Today was a double Boot Camp day – 6:00 (backyard) and 7:15 (beach) – I love starting my day outside with exercise and friends!!!  Today’s workout was all about moving and was FULL of squats and lunges of all types – it was AWESOME!!  And – my legs are still shaking an hour after finishing the 2nd round!!!

Last night was a lot of fun – we had plenty of great food, Texas Margaritas, friends and lots of fireworks!!!

4th of JulyAround dusk, Hunter decided it was time to bring out the big guns in terms of firecrackers.  He started with a tube that had 4000 firecrackers:

A short time later he decided it was time to light the really big roll – an 8000 round of firecrackers.

Good times!!!

Jordan had a plan and with the help of Hunter, Nick, Alex and Chris – they put on a great show for us!!

Between the show on our driveway, the lake show and the shows by several of our neighbors – we saw lots of great fireworks.  No major issues or injuries so it was a successful night overall!!!

How's this for a great family picture?!

The only downside to the entire thing?  It was close to midnight when I went to bed and then it took me a long time to fall asleep.  5:15 came way too early this morning!!!

Oh, well – small price to pay for a night of fun!!!  And, I plan to spend some time on the swim beach today soaking up the sun so I can relax/nap then!!!

What did you do to celebrate the 4th of July?  Do you shoot off fireworks?  

Growing up I never did but I love doing it (well, watching the boys) now!!!  

Happy Friday!!

Kim
