BITS OF OUR FOURTH


I hope all my American readers had a fabulous Fourth of July! Unfortunately we were busy pet sitting and Eric had to work (I know, who works on a national holiday?!?), but we made the most of it by hanging around locally. I started the day off going to a two hour Zumba class with my mom (dying!). Later the mister and I headed for a little afternoon dip in the lake, we set off explosives made by my little brother and all his friends (scariest moment of my life), ate lots and lots of Pizza like a true American, walked around and watched the neighborhood fireworks and floating lanters, and came home to have some sparkler fun before heading to bed.

A few photos from our Independence Day..
