happy birthday america.

[you have to love when a holiday falls on the middle of your week].

happy birthday america. you’re a great place to live. & I’m happy to call you home.

_____________________________

when a holiday rolls around, my go to question: what did I do last year?

well …

[J] & I walked right outside our apartment door. and sat our happy butts right down on the boardwalk, for a spectacular view of the macy’s fireworks display. and the empire state building suited up in its red, white, & blue glory.

[we don’t commonly drink “bud heavy,” but on the 4th, how can you turn down american flag cans? you can’t!]

[on the “jersey side”]

we had an amazing view. that now makes for amazing memories.

now to 2012 …

we WILL be seeing fireworks tonight [somewhere]. unfortunately, they might be us lighting our own sparklers in the backyard. [damn the drought]. but yesterday, we had a preliminary celebration: riding bikes & beachin’ in chicago.

it was great [& scorchin’].

[we rented bikes. & went cruisin’]

[& tried to cool off with popsicles at the beach ..I was turning into a lobster].

boys being boys :)

_______________________________

no matter what you do to celebrate today … enjoy yourselves. wear patriotic colors. remember why we’re celebrating.

[and stay cool].
