July 4th

We had the most fantastic July 4th this year. My parents were in town as well as my brother and we spent the afternoon and evening on our deck, grilling, eating watermelon and ice cream cones and listening to the fireworks going off all around us. There was no formal fireworks show in our neighborhood, but every year we are surrounded by some pretty fantastic ones from about 7-11 p.m. Part of the uniqueness of city living I guess!

With ice cream cone or watermelon in hand, dripping everywhere, Colin spent the evening excitedly watching the fireworks and we spent the evening joyfully watching him. 

I love summer nights like these in the city. So simple yet so perfect.
