I love spending the 4th here in my hometown. I feel so patriotic celebrating in a smaller town. I have yet to spend our nation's holiday in Vegas, but something tells me that it wouldn't feel the same. I may be completely wrong. . .
This Fourth. . .
-We (more like, I) decided it was a boat shoe kinda day - So American, ha!
-Once again, my dad outdid himself on the BBQ - his fajitas were FANTASTIC!
-We went down by the Rock River for fireworks and left a disheveled mess (the humidity is deadly right now. . .my hair is proof).
-We caved in, and at 11pm; we found ourselves savoring the Red, White, and Blue Trifle (one of our best traditions, yet!)
-I got to spend another holiday with my family, which is, always terrific!
Tomorrow, we are off to St. Louis for a Cardinal's game, sampling of a Man vs. Food restaurant, and exploring my little brother's favorite city! I love summer!
