Turner’s second Fourth of July is officially on the books and it was incredible.
Although our small town has one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, firework show in our region, Andrew and I decided to skip the hustle and bustle of the tourist trap this year and head for the lake with friends.
We went to Lake Lure, a beautiful little lake town less than 2 hours from home with my bff Mary, her boyfriend and his kids. It was relaxing, enjoyable, and just what we needed. It was actually mine and Andrew’s first kid-friendly adult get-together, weird as that might seem.
We spend the day out on the lake’s beach, which was great because although Turner was not a fan of the ocean’s beach and sand, he loved the lake. He loved the sand, the water didn’t scare him one bit, and he even dunked himself under a few times! He didn’t shed a single tear… which is far different than our Florida beach experience.
We didn’t see any fireworks, probably for the first time in my life, but I am ok with that. I am sure they would have scared Turner anyway, and he was basically down before dark. Once you have seen one firework, you have just about seen them all.
