Day 114 (Independence Day)

It was pretty much an All-American 4th of July for the Compound. Wonderful time at the pool in the morning, including lunch poolside, a family fave. Then putzing about the house doing whatever, watching a few more episodes of NUMB3RS (which has run away with the title "most watched show during the lockdown"). Matt grilled some hot dogs for the Hot Dog Smörgåsbord, another family favorite. The pièce de résistance, however, was the chocolate peanut butter pie Tracy whipped up and the red, white, and blue shortcake dessert Lynn did. Then it was fireworks time. There were nine fireworks shows across the Colorado Springs area, all synced to music broadcast by a handful of radio stations. Pretty cool. And Flying Horse was one of the nine shows, which occurred not a mile from our back deck. More of the day's photos are here.

A pair of fighters flew over while we were at the pool.

Lots of games for the kids.

Belly flop competition. We thought Lexi did really well.
She's just not big enough to make much of a splash.

Dancing on the new wall post fireworks!
