We had such a blast over the weekend I swear it was non stop partying! We started out on Thursday evening. You see, for Matt's job if he does 10 billable hours in one day the company will take him and his wife (me) out to dinner. We decided to go to Macaroni Grill. I twas awesome, we walked right in and we shared an appetizer, we had our owned salad and shared a meal. We ended up with more then half the meal left but it was all SOO delicious! We then did a little shopping and headed home. There we rolled our TV out of our garage and into the court yard of our apartment and enjoyed Independence Day with friends from the complex.
The movie was over at Midnight and pretty much everyone was knocked out except Cori and I...The girls pulled through to the end. The next morning Matt woke up at 7 to go check out the activities. He then came back to get me at 8 and thats when a day of riding bikes started. We rode down to the PCH which was closed to cars so it was totally rad to be on that.
...There was so much fog the visibility was very little...
We went and parked our chairs along Main Street for the big parade and went out searching for some yummy breakfast. This is what we had ...
Belgium Waffles with Strawberries and Blueberries on them with cinnamon and sugar on it. It was so delicious and filling.
Next was the parade. Our favorite part was the beginning with the Red Bull parachuters landing right in front of us, they had rocket packs on them so they were going so fast!
The airplane cars were pretty cool too
Then Tito Ortiz showed up, I guess he is from Huntington Beach
The parade ended up being 3 hours long so we left early to go home to our neighborhood BBQ! Which was so fun as well, lot of good food. We then all headed out to the beach, it was such a beautiful day there and surprisingly the beach we went to wasn't as crowded as we thought. We all went home and got ready for the fireworks show that they shot off the pier. It was so beautiful and not to mention the first time I had to ear a jacket on the 4th of July!
We loved the Kettle Corn, between 4 of us and Marley we pounded it!
The beautiful display, next year Matt wants to get closer to the water so we can see the reflection.
This was the ride back, there were so many people heading up Main Street from the pier and beach it was crazy, somehow we crossed it alive.
The next day we went to a Birthday party right outside our door. We had Hot Dogs and chips and delicious dessert! We also went to the beach. The water was so wonderful, nice and warm but chili when you first touch it.
Our weekend was a blast and we hope everyone else had a fun and safe holiday!
