Happy 4th!

Cole's inner pyro came out on the 3rd as we drove up to Boerne with friends Marissa + Terry and Valorie + Shane from our ward and loaded up on fireworks. After asking not one but two sheriffs where we could legally light them and getting the answer "Anywhere" from both, we found an empty field and began setting them off until the police came and busted us. Apparently the sheriffs didn't know what they were talking about. After Cole got a warning (thanks for taking one for the team, honey!) we ended up on the outskirts of a military base, which probably wasn't very wise either.

On Sunday, Anne + Michael invited us over for ribs, homemade berry pie, and lemonade--an All-American meal! We then went with them and Valorie + Shane to watch a fireworks display. Each burst was accompanied by the rowdy and intoxicated locals yelling things like "CHIMICHANGA!" "FRRREEDOM!" and "BUDWEISER!"--apparently representations of all that is American. It was hilarious and very...patriotic?

Hi there. So I'm not sure if you know me, but I was good friends with your hubby in High School. Any how, I saw your blog on one of my friends blogs and just checked it out, and noticed that you guys live in San Antonio. What the heck, that's where I live!! Email me at bexylou101@yahoo.com, and we'll have to get together!!
