July 4th

The gang went out to the Maggie Valley Country club for a buffet lunch. Kate and Connor did really well (once they realized that they could run around outside after our lunch).

Tom was thoughtful enough to buy some special "duck bread" (white bread!) so that Kate and Connor could go feed the ducks. To keep everyone calm, we decided to feed the ducks from the bridge rather than the bank. I think it was just as well as Kate and Connor were a little overwhelmed at the sight of 20 ducks and geese swimming towards them.

While we had a really nice time during the day, the fireworks that night was the special treat. Sitting on Tom and Martha's back porch and watching the fireworks over the lake was awesome. Kate and Connor managed to stay awake (the fireworks didn't even start until 9:30pm). While they didn't have much to "say" - they weren't afraid and seemed to enjoy seeing the explosions of sound and color.
