Day After the 4th

Kennedy wanted to spend the night with me then she learned that Daddy and Mommy had fireworks
they were going to shoot off at a friends house. We made plans to connect on Sunday after church and lunch.

One of the first things she talked me into was making a trip to the "Candy Store" as she calls it. We have a little convenience store a block from us. It has been there for YEARS.  I think it was there even when Doyle was a boy.

Kennedy had gotten some candy that you lick then stick it in a colored sugary powder mix. The mixture of colors gave her a green tongue. She thought that was too funny and wanted me to take a picture.

After a trip to the store, she wanted to ride bikes. The neighborhood we live in isn't very safe for riding so I took her on part of the trail now that she can ride without training wheels! We got on the trail by Fire station 2.

We rode about a mile. I thought that was pretty good for her.

We got back to where we started just as the sun was setting. We weren't very far from the Fire station and Doyle was working so we went to see him and get a cold drink of water!

It had been quite a while since I had brought Kennedy to the station and she wanted to look in the fire truck and ambulance.

Pretending to be the patient.

We were saying our goodbyes when a call came in for a fire alarm at the High School across the highway from the station. We watched them as the rolled out of the station. We learned later it was a false alarm but Kennedy got to see the guys in action.

Have a good one!


  1. Now that's a green tongue! And pretty awesome Kennedy rode a mile! How fun as a kid to be able to visit the fire station!
