Fourth of July

Sarah's first Fourth of July went over just perfectly! We had my parents, brother and grandparents over for a BBQ on our new backyard table set. Trey cooked some great food, although some WAS a little burnt...but hell, if I don't have to cook it...a little charred chicken ain't gonna kill us. Just as I suspected, our little sweetheart baby was not fazed in the least by all the fireworks going off. Nugget, the pain in the ass dog that cost us WAY too much money to just get rid off, barked the entire friggin day and night. Sarah just watched the little kids on our block running up and down our street. Buying a house on a deadend street...I swear it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. We can hang out in the street, we always know who is on our block and everyone pretty much takes care of each other. It's kind of like a small town, withe all its benefits AND pitfalls...we've got some INSANE people on this street. But that's another story. Anyway, we all settled in at around 10pm and slept like babies to the hum of our energy sucking, ten-year-old air conditioner. It's a wonder the damn thing even works...but hey, if it ain't broke and YOU are.....stick with what ya got.

I worked on that pic above in Adobe forever to get it just right. Can't wait to scrap it...
