July Fourth at Penn Haven

I just had one of the most relaxing Fourth of July weekends that I can recall in recent memory.  Perhaps it had something to do with the fact that last July Fourth Kern and I had just gotten engaged--so the holiday was full of planning.

This year was the opposite--in such a good way.

My parents met us at Penn Haven and we spent three days soaking up all the Eastern Shore had to offer.  The first day was a little windy (thanks, Arthur) but we put the crab traps in the water and hoped for the best.


We hopped on bikes and took a leisurely ride through the Neck district.  The Shore is a biker's dream--mile after mile of flat land.


Once the winds left, we had two of the most perfect weather days--highs in the mid 80's, clear skies and abundant sunshine.

Dad and I blew up a little boat and we all took turns paddling around Brooks Creek.


We enjoyed using the new pier!


Doesn't that blue sky just make you feel like the sky has no limit?


Two peas in a pod...


We spent time in the boat, we grilled burgers and hot dogs, napped, made home made ice cream and blueberry crisp, read on the porch, watched fireworks...it was true quality time.

I am thankful for all the men and women who have served (thanks, Dad!) and who currently serve so that we can live in a country where we are free and safe.

May we never take it for granted!
