4th of july

Okay. Yes. I know. It's been over two weeks since the 4th of July. And I still haven't posted.


..you can blame the general busyness of life for that. :] And I'll spare you the details so we can get to the point! I know this is kind of a lame, way overdue question, but--what did y'all do for the Fourth? Better yet: what are your yearly traditions? There. XD Gotcha planning ahead for next year, already...;)

Cowboys warming up

Our Fourth started with the best kind of thing--a rodeo. Olivia and I had gotten free tickets at a parade to a large rodeo about an hour away, and so we gathered some rodeo-lovin' friends and headed out. For the first time in my life, I splurged on fair food {think Teriyaki} and had a bite of the biggest Elephant Ear I have ever seen {think bigger than a steering wheel}. We shouted our lungs out for the daring cowboys on bulls, ooh and ahhed over the rodeo queens' pretty outfits. Yesh, I j'adore rodeos {kay, Française and rodeos don't exactly go...}

 It was a hot day, so we stopped and got smoothies at McDonald's after the show. By 5:00 p.m., we were back at the house, and preparing for a couple of families who would be spending the evening with us for food and a few home-approved fireworks. We had hamburgers, hotdogs, watermelon, chips, popsicles, icecream...all the traditional 4th o' Julyyy foodstuff. :D The boys then decided to take a dip in our swimming pool, and us girls thought a walk would be nice. We didn't get far before we spotted a nice daisy-filled field, and turned the walk into a photoshoot.
