The 4th of July

For the actual holiday of the 4th of July, Rick and I had planned to go hit a bucket of balls in the morning and then go to a movie. The clouds discouraged us from going to the golf course. (Being struck my lightening was not on the list of things to do that day. Crazy, I know.)
Instead I cooked us some brunch and we headed out to see TraNsForMerS around 11:00. It was a GREAT movie. We both thought the first was better but it was still a good movie. Lots of great action. Not only did we see a good movie but we saw the best two trailers out right now:

Harry Potter
New Moon
We had watched both online but there was nothing like watching them on the big screen.
We are both SOOOOO excited!
Ok back to the 4th...sorry about that. ;-)
After the movie the temperature had heated way up so we decided to hit the pool for a bit to cool off. After hanging out there, playing and reading we came home and had dinner.
We had changed our clothes and were ready for an evening at home while watching the night race at Daytona, when I received a text from my best friend. She had invited us over for dinner and fireworks. I told her that we had just finished dinner but would be over in an hour with brownies.
We headed over to enjoy watermelon, brownies and s'mores on the back porch fire pit along with our own private firework show.
We also had glowsticks rather than sparkles. I thought it was brilliant! The kids could have glowing items for much longer than a few minutes, they could throw them around and best of all, no one could get burned.

We had a wonderful 4th of July and it was great to have Sunday to recover from all of it.
