A Fairly Festive Fourth

We had a really nice 4th of July weekend! I'm fortunate and my company always gives us 2 days off, so I got a 4-day weekend, and it was wonderful.

First off, I can't talk about this period of time without mentioning HAMILTON. I have been counting down to being able to stream the original cast for months, and IT. DID. NOT. DISAPPOINT. I let Trent watch it with me, and we had to watch it in chunks, but he and I were both giddy watching it. AND Brent has also said he wants to watch it because he is curious about something Trent and I both love this much. I almost died.

Watching with my guy - gosh he's cute

Saturday morning I went for a run with Kelly. {She is one of my HS besties who moved into our neighborhood!! Here's where I shared our backstory.} It was a great way to start off a day of non-stop eating.

My view when I left - all the heart eyes

We had our 2 neighbor friends from RBC {I created a new label for all our neighborhood activities} come over to enjoy the day together - we kind of bubble together.

I made this delicious trifle - it was so good!

We hit up the pool for a few hours - so glad we are still able to swim!

You guys know themed outfits are something I LOVE!

Trey, Drew, and Tanner {Tanner and Trey are Kelly's kids}

The neighborhood parade was canceled, but Brent still decorated our golf cart.
We got lots of waves and honks driving around the neighborhood!

We had a great time eating, talking, drinking, and the kids played together so great. We got out the bounce house, they ran around, and Brent got sparklers. Someone in the neighborhood set off fireworks, so we got a great view from our front yard.

I forgot to put Paige's headband on her, so I decided to wear it, ha.

Susie got Prosecco Pong for her birthday so we HAD to play.

We stayed up way too late and ate and drank way too much, but we had a great day!

Oh Hamilton. I bribed adam into watching it with me and we got halfway then fell asleep. That was 5 days ago and we still haven’t sat down to finish it. I can say that the visual help tremendously (versus just listening to the soundtrack) and I appreciate the diverse cast but overall still falls flat compared to Rent. Oh well. I’m glad the rest of America loves it and the show doesn’t need our approval to thrive. I accept that I can root for Lin Manuel even if it’s not my favorite.
