3rd is the new 4th

In our town, the Fourth of July is celebrated on the third. I am assuming this is intentional, to give families an opportunity to spend the actual holiday somewhere else. Or have another family get together. For us, it means we celebrate on the third and relax on the fourth. For the first time, we celebrated America with our close friends. We are so lucky to have amazing friends that live nearby or are willing to travel and are such a blast to be around. Our friends are the best and we had a fabulous time! We spiffied up our house and backyard just in time for the big shin-dig. Sadly, I do not have any other pictures of the event. Some of the highlights were.....tons of yummy food, slushies, perfect view of the firework show, dance party, and karaoke time! Thanks to everyone who helped and came to the first annual 3rd of July Party!

The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing, cleaning, lounging by the pool, and seeing a fab movie--Wall-E
Go see it now!
