Summer of 2009 Fun!

Independence Day celebrations stretched out nearly two weeks for us!

- Celebrate Freedom, a massive free outdoor concert that was BRUTALLY hot, but most importantly we met Linda and Bill there! So good to chat, even if it was just for a little while.

- Community Group Party! We swam, played games, talked for ages, had a group dinner, and it was generally fantastic to hang out.

- KaBoom Town, which is a massive fireworks display.

We began the evening by finding a parking spot blocks away, right next to a Texas truck with this bumper sticker.

After I was finished rolling my eyes, we sat down and enjoyed our Sonic chili dogs, Corona, ice cream, and random planes flying around.

I fell completely in love with this adorable Indian family next to us, including this cute little girl.

- Grill and Fireworks with family
TM's house is fantastic for hosting, and we had a big group that enjoyed Baughan's hamburgers, our smores, games of wii and poker, and TM's fantastic lattes. We also saw somewhere over 20 different fireworks shows in the distance from TM's back porch with a view.

Looks like heaps of fun:) Glad you go to hang out with your family for a change, it's always great to see them in one place when it's such a rare occurance!

Wow - looks like you had an awesome awesome time. I wasn't sure which article to post a note on until I saw that bumper sticker. Don't all know what to say... It always makes me wonder how people can have such basic grammar mistakes in their native language, though. I think I'll have to focus on that part of the bumper sticker. :)

Love the airplane pic!
