stars and stripes forever!

This 4th of July consisted of good food and good friends, which more than made up for the lack of fireworks (San Antonio banned them due to drought). We sampled some fine, grilled meats at Chama Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse with the Johnsons, the Rupps, and the Jubers. After Anne crushed a glass with her bare hands and ruined our fun (just kidding, Anne), we took the party down the road to Orange Leaf, a self-serve froyo place. So good!

Afterwards, Cole and I went to Best Buy and ogled the 3D TVs. We then headed out to The Morgans for some delicious homemade BBQ wings. Thanks Brad + Jessica!

I felt especially grateful this year for our country and particularly the servicemen and women throughout American history who have helped defend, and who have even given their lives for freedom. I feel so proud and grateful to be an American!

Here are some pictures from the weekend:

this picture is so silly, and I love how a froyo is sticking out of Cole's head
