We didn't do anything for the 4th which is unusual, but nice. We did drag everyone out for ice cream and fireworks at 9:30. Big mistake. After sitting in our prized spot for an hour in 100 degree weather before everything started, Braelynn was ready to go home. We packed up and while carrying Braelynn up the stairs to her room, we found out that we can see the fireworks from our windows! Next year we will definitely take advantage of that!
Who doesn't love Chik-fil-a? Such good food and an awesome company all around. They had cow appreciation day last week! If you dressed from head to hoof as a cow, you got a free meal! Kent was mortified...it isn't very often I can't bribe him to doing something for free food! Luckily I got the days mixed up so we got to do a dress rehearsal the night before! By Friday morning Kent was much more willing. While eating lunch at our nearest location we thought how fun it would be to drive around and see how many free meals we could get. Yes, we need real jobs...or a hobby.
After 5 stops we decided we had enough food and decided it was time to go home. Just so you know...their nuggets and fries freeze beautifully!
The next day we loaded up the car and headed to our annual San Diego trip with my family. This year Shawn and her family, and Kenny were able to come. We really missed Eddie- hopefully he can make it next year. The weather was beautiful, the beach was perfect, and we were finally able to have a campfire and roast some marshmallows! Braelynn had a blast with Chloe, and definitely loves the beach. Now we are counting down the days until next year!
