4th of July

Fourth of July has passed by the second year in a row with things seeming just a tad ascue for me. You see for 11 years Jason and I were the King and Queen of 4th of July.... we had a big bbq, invited tons of friends and family and spent a small fortune on a aresenol of fireworks. Last year on July 1st we moved into our new house which very amazing happens to sit right smack dab in the middle of a bunch of trees. Alas we can not celebrate the 4th as we have in years past. We went from having 1.2 acres of flat level grassy land to 1.5 acres of wooded land. Not so party/firework friendly. We are in the process of putting in a lawn and with luck will be back at it next year. Maybe not with the same kinds of fireworks as years past but atleast we can host again and do what we love. Having parties and feeding our friends is what makes us happy. The 4th this year was a quiet family affair at my in-laws. It was nice to get to sit and relax and not have to worry about entertaining anyone but secretly we really do miss it!
