The latest holiday offered me a chance to spend a day with my family that was rewarding in so many ways.

Just look at this guy’s face… and this is at 9:30 pm, about one and a half hours past the normal bedtime, with a very short nap taken during the day, and after swimming, which usually runs his tank nearly down to empty.

Of course, near the end of the fireworks show, he was sitting with Mommy on the blanket, and abruptly rolled over, only to fall asleep just a few minutes later. He slept through the finale of the show, which ended up much louder than the rest of it.

I must say I’m proud though, not a cry or a tear.  It takes more than a multi-colored flash of light or a loud BOOOOOM to get this guy rattled.
