Fourth of July Weekend
We had a fabulous long holiday weekend but I must admit that in all of the celebrating, I kind of forgot to take pictures. Some weekends just call for being present and enjoying the moment I suppose! Luckily I caught a few highlights on my iphone.
Thursday night we went to the Blue Wahoos game and watched Jesse Winkler hit a home run at the bottom of the 9th to win the game. This was topped only by the fireworks show after the game. Seriously these fireworks were the best. They were over 20 minutes long, perfectly set to awesome music and featured some cool sparkly fireworks I had never seen before.
We woke up on Friday with plans to go to the beach but weren’t too sure about braving the traffic/crowds so decided to head over to The Magnolia for lunch and see how we felt after. The Magnolia is this adorable little restaurant off Scenic Highway that has incredible chicken salad and the most delicious “kitchen sink” cheesecake dessert on earth. When we got to The Magnolia, the owners (the coolest young couple, Kiley and Bill!) were out back drinking beers and grilling. We ended up hanging out, eating burgers and brats from the grill and drinking for the majority of the day. It was completely spontaneous and felt like we were at a 4th of July cookout at a friend’s house. They truly make you feel like family. Rob held down the keg and I
finished off a bottle drank some delicious La Merika wine.
Needless to say, the rest of the weekend looked kind of like this:
We just can’t keep up like we used to 😉
