July 4th

As soon as I put the pictures into the computer, I will post them. We had a great 4th of July. I had to work so we kept it pretty low key. We usually have all of Rich's family over, swim, bbq, etc. Since I had to work we decided to keep it just our family. I finally made it home about 2 pm and went out and watched the family swim. Took lots of pictures, just need to put them in the computer:)
We decided it was to darn hot outside to grill (it was 108 degrees) so we went to In and Out Burger. They have the best burgers and homemade french fries!! It was actually pretty crowded - I was surprised. We then came home and turned on the tv to our local pbs station. I grew up in Virginia and was lucky enough to see the fireworks at our nation's capitol a few times. I found out a few years ago that pbs broadcasts the fireworks and the concerts before. We sat in our air conditioned house and enjoyed Barry Manilow, Aretha Franklin, Sesame Street characters (they are celebrating 40 years of being on tv!) and various bands from the military. We then got to watch the most fantastic fireworks - my kids loved it and did not miss being outside at all. The way they filmed it made you feel like you were sitting right underneath the fireworks.
Brandon was invited to go Swing dancing with one of his friends and older sister. He did not know what it was but decided to give it a try. He came home and said it was lots of fun and they gave lessons that night too. How was your 4th of July?

We went to a Luau that a member of the church held with a real Pacific Islander there to dance for us. We got to see Fireworks on Thursday night with our Favorite neighbors and their Granddaughter. and just relax at home with the family.
