Since the fourth of July was in the middle of the week this year nobody in my circle of acquaintance seemed to know how to handle it. I feel that it would be appropriate if somehow Independence day could always be on a weekend that way it wouldn't be the cause of the problem of trying to think of what to do with this random day off in the middle of the week. Fortunately my friend Amber invited me to pool party and BBQ with a group of mid singles from the area. This is a lovely fruit and pound cake platter at the BBQ almost too pretty to eat.
I car pooled with Amber and our friend Jessica to the party place. Here we are ready to go for a swim.
G9 Gals. Jessica, Me, Amber, Kimberly.
The pool looked oh so refreshing.
The party started out fairly small but grew rapidly to almost 50 people. The party goes enjoying the BBQ and the afternoon sunshine.
Jessica and I enjoying floating around in the pool...trying to avoid the drowned rat look...which I did successfully for about 30 minutes before getting flipped over. Don't worry though I rocked the after pool look.
The BBQers hard at work.
Later that night we headed down to the beach for the fireworks. I spotted this fancy pants beach house who are already ready for Christmas complete with the lit up Christmas tree in the window.
I had to document my 4th of July nails. Rocking the patriotic look.
Patriotic for the 4th, sucka.
From our spot on the beach we could see 7 different fireworks displays. This was the one in front of us. Beautiful. Kimberly and I sang patriotic songs as the fireworks went off. Amber and Jess oohed and ahhed. We really know how to make a fireworks show great. It was a great day of celebration and relaxation.
