The 4th of July is always a fun family day! It was unbearably hot outside as expected so we spent our day keeping cool. We headed to the Alamo to see the new Despicable Me movie for lunch and then spent the rest of the day at my parent's pool. There was a mini-birthday celebration for Mike, mostly thanks to my Grandma's insistence, and lots of swimming, playing and fighting among our kids ;-). After a BBQ dinner we picked up some fireworks and headed to our house to finish off the night. Without Scotto here our fireworks shows are much less exciting, but we were able to watch quite a few neighbors setting off the big guys in between our sparklers and roman candles. All in all a successful holiday :-)!
In May we stopped by Walmart for something and saw all their cheap patriotic gear. I couldn't resist the swimsuits for the girls and we died laughing over the matching hat and swimsuit set for Mike so bought it as well :-).
