Happy Independence Day, everybody! What better way to celebrate the birth of our nation than blowing up a small part of it, while eating a burger, a brat, and a steak. It's what our founding fathers would want.
Repeating others' jokes aside, we had a very nice Independence Day weekend, and hope you did too. By weekend, I mostly mean Saturday.
Friday night we celebrated our anniversary by going out to dinner at China Lily and going to see Toy Story 3, while Morgan stayed at Grandma and Grandpa's. Food was good, the company was the best (each other) and the movie was fantastic, as all Pixar movies are. Still not sure if it is my favorite Toy Story or not, but it was a great way to end the franchise, I couldn't have done it any better.
Morgan stayed at Grandma's the whole night, our first night away from our little boy. It was nice to relax and not have to worry about him, but we still missed him terribly, which is nice. If we didn't, I'd be a little worried. ;)
Saturday Jen, Maddie and Eric (our sister in law and niece and nephew) from Madera, CA came to visit, and the whole family (well, the whole Utah County family) and they went to Seven Peaks for fun in the sun. It was the first time I've gone without going on any of the line slides, on account of my leg, my son, and not wanting to wait in the lines or go up the stairs, and it was still one of the most fun times I've had there. Morgan didn't care for it at first, but he warmed up to it as the sun warmed up the water. (We got there at 11, so it was still pretty cold. I tried going down a kid slide with him on my lap, but either my butt's too fat, or there wasn't enough water, or both, because I got stuck on the slide and had to scoot my way down with a freaked out little boy on my lap.) But he loved the wave pool and I look forward to coming back again when he is older and when I remember to put sunscreen on my upper back.
After the water park we went to Tracie's parents for a delicious barbecue and lawn games and obligatory blowing crap up. A great way to celebrate. We regret not being able to attend Brett and Charlotte's holiday barbecue, but we were so exhausted we could hardly move. Even as much as I missed him, I considered asking (begging) Morgan's Grandpa and Grandma to watch him again.
Sunday was very relaxing, we had leftovers and still recuperated from the day before, while the sunburns on my back got worse.
Monday I decided to go into work. Not sure what possessed me to sign up for it at the time, but I did. It mostly involved working on my homework (20 page autobiography) and watching "Hot Rod" which I still don't think is as good or as funny as others seem to want me to.
That's pretty much our holiday weekend in a nutshell, with a few other tidbits nestled in there as well, how was your Fourth of July?
