doing all three things currently while digging up old
memories of past fourth of
fun factor: MOST fun a kid could have. ever.
every year like clockwork, as soon as my brother and I finished
our last day of school, we would hop on the first flight to omaha to visit our
grandparents and embark on the best three weeks of summer. it was the good life. full of grandparent
loving, pool swimming, and firefly catching. the fourth of july always fell right
in the middle of our time there and let me tell you, we did it big. country
club pool party. all. day. long. diving for
coins, relay races, the limbo, you name it, we did it. burgers, popsicles,
cotton candy, you name it, we ate it. to this day, any mention of omaha takes
me back to those glorious lazy days by the pool and the warm summer nights spent
with family. life truly was as simple as
it could be. i miss those times dearly but am glad that they are locked in my memory forever.
