Happy 4th of July!

I was very patriotic on Wednesday…red white a blue shirt and an awesome USA headpiece.

I even wore the headpiece for a very sweaty 6.3 mile run. 🙂 The humidity was at 500% on Wednesday and you started sweating with the thought of going outside.

My 4th started with a 33 mile bike ride with Frank. This is an old picture but you get the idea.

The course was SUPER hilly and even Frank (who bikes all the time and is a triathlete), was done at the end. The last few miles felt like the last few miles of a marathon…I was so happy when it was over, but as always, so happy that I did it.

Next up was a BBQ with Chris’ work family. Annabelle got dressed in her red, white, and blue and we crossed our fingers that she wouldn’t require a wardrobe change before we got to the party.


Annabelle feeding update: she totally ate some bananas yesterday, but all she really wants to eat is her feet.

Chris’ boss has a great BBQ setup.


I ate a burger, watermelon, pasta salad, and raw veggies (my plate of one of each dessert is not pictured). Annabelle ate her hands.


It was a really fun day and Annabelle enjoyed her first 4th of July.


We caught up on Big Brother episodes when we got home and Molly hid in the closet during the fireworks…I live in the country and everybody seems to have fireworks at all times.

We have a neighborhood BBQ tonight, so I decided to make chocolate chip cookies at 10:30 pm last night…


I finally got to bed around midnight and AB decided that she wanted breakfast at 5 am…this is going to be a rough work day.

I hope you all had a great 4th of July!

What do you normally do to celebrate the 4th?
My friends Lauren and Amber (and Annabelle’s future boyfriend) enjoyed a pool day and a minor league baseball game. 🙂
