Independence Day



i love the 4th of july, it is my favorite holiday, and even though all of our plans turned out to be spur of the moment, this year was a great one.

first we went to church, of course. then we had a bbq at the park with three other families/couples. tara made this amazing dip that i have to get the recipe for. it had black beans and avocado... what else do does a girl need? tatum and i munched on that the whole time.


(love the accidental 2 thumbs up)

the men threw around the football, and kicked around the soccer ball. tatum got to try out the climbing wall.




we attempted to go to a concert and fireworks at chazimal memorial park, which it turns out, is right on the border. the traffic to get down there was crazy


and we were surrounded by these


i guess there were a bunch of chihuahuans that came over to party for a day.

so we didn't end up at the concert, but found another park that was close enough to see the beautiful fireworks and skip out on the traffic.




tate got a little scared and kept jumping from my lap to gregs. but once dad picked her up and cuddled with the blanket she got into it. im talking ooo's and ahh's.


(i did not take this pic, thanks google)

one of the best parts of my year
