I'm sure by now you are totally sick of reading posts about what everybody did on the 4th July, but there is no other way to end this weeks patriotic theme. PLUS this one involves a cute baby.
It's funny how much I love celebrating American holidays (being South African and all). Decked out from head to toe in red, white and blue; I can get pretty patriotic about my new home. 'merica!
We had a semi-low key day with my mom, Mike's dad and a couple of cousins coming over to our apartment for a pre-fireworks BBQ. We The boys grilled hamburgers and hot dogs in true American fashion and we sipped on cocktails while soaking up (or sweating out) the nearly 100 degree New York weather.
|Yes, you may laugh at our tiny grill!|
With all the eating that is involved when celebrating America's birthday, we almost lost track of time and rushed to go see the fireworks. I stuck Zoey in her sling and she immediately fell asleep (babies don't appreciate fireworks). Down the road from our apartment there is a waterfront park/beach where you have clear views of the Long Island Sound. Not only did we get to see "our" display, but we had great views of the neighbouring towns displays too.
How did you celebrate your July 4th?
