I hope everyone who had the day off had a fun holiday yesterday for the 4th of July! Matt and I started our day with Crossfit and then headed to our friends Sarah and Matt’s apartment to see their adorable new baby boy.
Their son Holden is 3 weeks old now and we’ve been dying to meet him! Matt and I brought lunch over (they requested Cosi) and we all enjoyed lunch while watching him sleep. After we ate, he was awake and playing — apparently we came at a good time because he wasn’t fussy at all while we were there!
Babies make the most hilarious faces — they’re so fun to watch. I always wonder what’s going on in their little brains.
Isn’t this name display they made in his room cute?
Matt and I spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing and then headed to our friends Tom and Janice’s apartment to have dinner and watch the fireworks.
They invited a group of about 10 of us over and had a spread of things for us to snack on when we arrived. Watermelon in summer is the best.
For dinner, we had pulled pork and chicken and mini hamburgers. Yum!
Plus a big spinach strawberry salad. I really love strawberries on salad — I need to do this more often at home!
I had a big serving of salad and two mini buns — one topped with pulled chicken and pork, and one with a hamburger. Hit the spot!
We watched the fireworks on the roof of their building before heading home and crashing. We had a nice clear view of the fireworks over the Washington Monument although I have to say it’s just not nearly the same to see them from far away as it is to enjoy them up close! My favorite is hearing all the booms and crackles and having the fireworks literally fill up the whole sky above you. Next year I want to see them up close again.
How was your 4th of July?
