July the Fourth

Our 4th of July this year was a little different than usual because for the first time in my LIFE I had to WORK on the holiday. I guess that's what I get for working at a day camp haha. So while I was complaining and griping about having to go into work while EVERYONE else in the country was drinking beers and partying... Keith made some plans with friends to fill up his time until we thought I would be getting home. Turns out, our usual roster of 300 campers was reduced to about 55, so when our director asked who wanted to go home I raised my hand as high as it would go haha. Needless to say, I was there and back in less than 2 hours. With Keith headed off to the batting cages with Bennett, I toyed with the idea of taking a nap, but ended up going to the gym because I wanted to swim. The outdoor pool was PACKED beyond limits, so I opted to exercise for a bit, and then swim laps in the indoor pool solo. Did nothing for my "tan" but the "ADULTS ONLY" sign on the door won me over haha. After I got home, Keith was done hitting baseballs so I met him down the street at the Music City Hot Chicken Festival. Wooooooof. It was probably around 110degrees outside so even the walk from the car to the park was like crawling across the surface of the sun... meaning we didn't stay too long, because the idea of eating food meant to scald your mouth couldn't have been any less appealing, ugh. We shared a sandwich, Keith had a couple beers and then we headed home to get our house ready to have people over for a BBQ. By about 6pm we a great group of friends hanging out on the deck while Keith grilled various things for everyone and we enjoyed some beers and conversations together. Everyone left by 8 or 9 to get back home, or to see fireworks and Keith and I actually ended up in bed before our local fireworks even went off! Party animals haha. Here are some of our daily photos:

That whole hour I was at work? Yeah, I just made festive buttons haha

Indoor pool... much preferred to the one foot of personal space I would have had in the outdoor pool, yuck.

Feigning excitement at the hot chicken festival... believe me, no one is happy when its more than 100degrees outside.
