4th of July Weekend Recap

Our 4th of July weekend was pretty jam packed. Are jam packed weekend started on the 4th. Most of the day was spent cleaning up our house, considering it was an absolute mess. We also had one of our friends over for burgers and brats. We watched the Rapids game and then caught the fireworks that we could see from our backyard. It was probably one of the more laid back days.

Friday, unfortunately I had to get up and go to work! Boo!!! I only stayed until noon though and then I headed home to relax for a little bit before we headed out for the night. Aran's parents came down for the night and we went to the Sky Sox game. They won and had a great fireworks show after the game. 

Saturday we met up with Aran's parents for the day and did some shopping and some running around. We found an awesome deal on this Calphalon pot and pan set that has a steamer insert for steaming veggies! And we also bought Louie a new bandanna because he is weird and loves wearing them. Nananananananananananananananana Bat Dog!!!!

Sunday we lounged around the house for most of the day and did our grocery shopping and stuff like that. Sunday evening we headed up to Denver because we had tickets for the Colorado Rapids game that night. We were about five rows back from the field. They were pretty good seats except for when they were playing in the corner on the other side of the field. You couldn't see anything.

Unfortunately the game ended in a 0-0 tie. Which is better than a loss, but it still would have been nice to see the Rapids score. After the game they had a really big fireworks show. It was way better than the other ones we had seen earlier in the weekend. 

After the game we headed home. We got home around midnight which wasn't fun considering we had to be up for work the next day. Oh well, we had a good time and got to spend some time together. 

It was a very busy weekend, but it was a fun one. I hope you guys all had a great 4th of July weekend as well. And I just want to say thank you to all of you out there that are serving our country and making it possible for us to live our day to day lives. Without you doing what you do, we wouldn't be able to live in this amazing country. So thank you from the bottom of my heart!
