4th of July

We had a great 4th of July.  I love this day but it is my  husband's favorite day of the year. 
He was super excited to spend the day with my cousins at their pool.  It of course poured while we were there.  Luckily we had the driest picnic bench in the whole place.
We still did a lot of this...
My mom is in the middle, her sister is to the left and her good friend is on the right. Isn't it funny how her friend looks more like her than her own sister?
We were acting pretty silly while we waited for the rain to pass.
Three of my cousins.
Don't you love when this happens to you photos?







Me and my mom

I picked up a new dress for the holiday from Forever 21.  I didn't notice till I saw the photos that the strips don't line up, but for under $20 what do you expect.

We also went to the professional field lacrosse game at Mile High.  There was of course a firework display at the end that was pretty good.  They were shooting them off all around the stadium and a few of them were landing in the crowd before they had fully burned out.  I can't tell you how scared I was that one would land on us.

Also don't forget I am answering any questions you may want to ask me.  Just leave them in a comment or e-mail.

Looks fun although damp - it was a rainy, humid mess around here too!

I ALWAYS worry I'll somehow get burned by a firework that doesn't go out all the way. Thankfully last night I was watching from a distance, so no worries there.

Looks like you made the best of a rainy 4th!

It rained here too. But anything to cool down the heat was very welcome! Glad you had a good holiday weekend!
