Happy Birthday USA

We've spent the weekend celebrating the birthday of our great country. We decided (okay, I decided and the rest of the family decided they'd go along with mom's idea) that we'd do go 'ole American things this weekend. Yesterday evening we hit a local drive-in for hot dogs, onion rings and root beer. Do they even have drive-ins in other countries?

Then we headed out for time at the park followed by fireworks. There is nothing quite like celebrating the 4th with 4 kids--especially when one is 3. "That was totally awesome!" was heard for every single one I think.

Today it rained all. day. long. We started the official birthday with donuts, had grilled chicken for lunch (I mark all birthdays by telling what we ate!) and then we rounded out the day with a trip to the movie theater. I'm not sure any other country likes the movies like we do here in America. We went to a small local theater that has cheap tickets. It was actually more fun than going to the expensive ones.

Hope everyone had a great day with family and friends! Happy 4th of July everyone!

I was thinking about you this weekend as we drove east on 80 headed to Naperville to see Glenn's sister and her family. Glad you had such a fun 4th.
