Geez. Time flies doesn't it? It's been a month since I've posted. This last weekend was the 4th of July, and Brent came down to visit. I love having him here. He got here on Friday and I met him at my house after working on the Vogue's float for the parade. I was in the parade on Saturday, and he decided to sleep in.
The Vogue's float was really cute, patriotic, and it followed the parade's theme "the 4th of July through a child's eyes." A section of our float was a little kids room with BIG stuffed animals and giant toy blocks and a big doll house and carousel horse. Another section of the float was a picnic area with over-sized hamburgers and hot dog and watermelon and giant Pepsi and Coca Cola cans. There was also a kiddie pool in that section. The last section had giant fireworks that we had build and we had Donnie in a Navy outfit holding the flag. Our idea was morning/noon/night. I sat in the kiddie pool with Nikki and two little girls. All the girls did their hair like little girls: pigtails and side pony's with ringlets, and we all had BIG red and blue bows. (When I get some pictures I'll post them).
After the parade, I was VERY tired, so I went home and took a nap with Brent. Then we decided to go down by the river and check out all the little stands that businesses had up. We bought some yummy kettle corn, and got a coupon for the new Hard Hat Restaurant. We had the BEST view of the fireworks. We went to freeman and found a spot that wasn't crowded at all, and we could even see the low fireworks. We also brought our left over Mongolian Grill; very American I know. Haha.
All in all I had an amazing weekend. :]
