fourth of july. twenty fourteen

July 04 2014 021

we thought about having a pool bbq for fourth of july

but in the end, we decided to go to the beach and make a day of it

and so we did

we rented two tents and we spent all of fourth of july on the beach

in southbeach

and in the water for the most part

because it was a hot, hot day

and despite the weather forecast for thunder showers, the weather was actually on our side and the rain did not come

we got hotdogs, burgers, frozen lemonade and watermelon smoothies from the beach vendors and later we got front porch to go

after the amazing fireworks (no pictures. can you believe it?) the only clean up we had to do was pack up our towels and get rid of our garbage

easy

it always makes me feel extra good when Lily makes a comment like “this is the best day EVER!”

mission accomplished

hope you all had a great one too

happy monday friends
