Our 4th was very laid back.
It was very hot here...triple digits!
We started our day with the community parade.
Our niece is here visiting and got to join us.
Hey look! It's Thia Megia from American Idol sitting in the backseat.
Check out this little guys decked out wheels!
After the parade we made our way to the central park where vendors, food, live music and fun were happening. I tried some deep fried asparagus spears. They were DELISH! Unfortunately we didn't stay long because of the heat. We did get some shaved ice to cool our palates and then left.
We had some down time at home before I prepared the BBQ spread. I had my cousins come over to enjoy the feast.
BBQ'd burgers with all the fixings....Lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickle slices, bacon, sliced avocado, chili and of course cheese. We also had jello salad, green salad, melon-strawberry salad and chips.
Our tummies thanked us!
I wish I took some pics, but I was too busy prepping. And I didn't even take my camera when we went to the firework show.
O-well. You all know what fireworks look like anyway, right!?
Great 4th of July!
