"You look like the Fourth of July!..."
"..... Makes me want a hot dog real bad."- Legally Blonde 2
Happy Birthday, America!
Fourth of July calls for hot dogs, burgers, corn on the cob, watermelon, chips, salad and anything you would smell and find at a cookout. Over the past few years, it's become a favorite of mine. Summertime, BBQ food, drinks, family and friends? I don't think anything else could beat it.
My family and I, mum, dad and Jack, had a mini cookout just for us. It felt good working as a team to get everything ready. Dad grilling the hot dogs and burgers. Mom steaming the corn on the cob and cutting up the watermelon. The smell of the all food was just amazing. I just HAD to take a picture of all of our hard work. Looks amazing right? It totally was. I had a Bud Light (I'm 28, so drink legally kids) and Arizona Fruit Punch. Everything just tasted just right.
After dinner, we went to our neighbor's house, who have a pool, to relax and just enjoy the weather and the pool. I brought over a beer and drank it by the pool. I had to have my Bud Light in a mason jar glass and had a curly straw. And yes, I drink my beer with a straw. Go ahead and judge. I felt like I was on vacation. The whole day was just amazing. In know I am repeating my self, but, spending the day with family and friends with great food? Excellent day. Fantastic day. With a full stomach and a few hours swimming? I'm going to sleep like a baby tonight while listening to fireworks.
Just a great day over all. Happy 4th, everyone!
Until tomorrow with the next post!
