Usually for the 4th of July we have a BBQ with friends and then head out for fireworks. This year was kind of different for us!
Tony had to work for part of the day and Rachelle and Zachary weren't going to be home so we decided to keep it low key this year!
Instead of BBQ of chicken or steak, we went to a carniceria that has the best carne asada around. They add the marinade with your meat when you buy it! They also make their tortillas right there and they are so good. We got a bunch of meat, tortillas, corn and watermelon and were set!
When Tony got home he fired up the grill and we were off! It was so good! I liked the change of pace. A good alternative to the usual!
We stayed home and swam and just hung out.
Grace was so excited to be having a "party" She sat at the table for most of the day eating cupcakes and handing out the treats to everyone. As you can see, she and Ethan loved the chocolate! I think they are wearing as much as they ate!
Ethan's fav of the day was the watermelon. That boy can eat!
We decided not to go see any fireworks. We just weren't sure where to find them and the thought of hanging out in 100 degree plus weather wasn't appealing!
All in all, it was a pretty fun, if not low key, 4th of July.
How did you spend your day?
