Happy 4th!

This year we had a quiet and relaxing 4th of July and it was SO nice! Some friends of ours are out of town so we have been utilizing their pool - don't want the pool to be lonely. My mom came up (Dad had to work) and we laid out by the pool. Rob cooked an AWESOME lunch with steaks, grilled asparagus and snowpeas, and grilled corn on the cob and I had made a pasta salad. Then for dessert, we had a French Vanilla Pound Cake (thanks Fresh Market). Lunch was great as was just lounging at the pool! It was a great day and we had plenty of time to think about how lucky we are to be Americans and how blessed we were to born in the United States!

We took the dogs along with us for the day. Buster LOVES to swim, Minnie is okay with it, and Sam absolutely HATES it. They had such a good time.

Buster laying out after much is this dog loving life?
Minnie's life is pretty good too....

What's the 4th of July without fireworks? Rob and I loaded up with some Bruster's ice cream and headed over to BridgeStreet to see their fireworks.
It was a great day and a wonderful 4th! I hope everyone had a great day and took a moment to reflect how great it is to live in this wonderful country!
