4th of July

Photobucket
Saturday was the 4th of July here in the states (aka the post office is closed, everyone flocks to the beach, and the view of the moon is blocked by firework smoke). Sam and I met up with our family at my brothers house for a backyard get together, and it must have been the hottest day of the year! Fun was had, and popsicles were eaten, all under a giant magnolia tree. After a cat nap and going with my mother to The Cheesecake Factory, we went back to my brothers for fireworks. For nearly 50 years the city I live in has held "The biggest fireworks display west of the Mississippi". This year though they ran out of money for it, so it seemed like there were more people than ever setting off their own fireworks, the sky was always lit up. I hope everyone had a great weekend!

You should have come to our fireworks display. We blew up LaCenter (not a bad thing) plus we got eaten by mosqitoes.

That is the perfect 4th of July dress! Looks like you had a great time. I live in Taipei, so unfortunately the only fireworks display I saw was mosquitoes blowing up when I swatted at them with our electrified mosquito racket, lol.
