July 4th

Well let's start with July 3rd first.  It was the date a year ago that we got engaged.  So I associate our engagement with fireworks since we saw lots on the beach that night.  So now I love fireworks more than ever, ha!  And it was July 4th weekend and we got to tell a lot of our neighbors/friends at the July 4th fireworks show in Charlotte on our pool deck.  We watched them in the same place this year too!

I prepped most of the food early in the morning.  Then I hung by the pool for a couple hours. 

Around 5:30 we grilled out...

Kevin's parents came up for dinner!

Dogs, pimento cheese burgers, pasta salad, corn, baked beans. 

And I made my first flag cake.  I think it turned out alright despite missing a few states.  Ha! 

Jenn also made a blueberry cobbler which I was evidently too busy eating and didn't take a picture of it.

Here we all are lined up on the 10th floor pool deck! 

Tara and I. 

Fireworks were great but it was quick to bed afterwards because it was a "school night!"

Hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July!  At least it's the weekend now....
