July 4th

Well, this was not our traditional fourth of July celebration. We usually go to Canyon to watch the parade and see all of Jeremy's friends from high school and his home town. After the parade, we go to "Fair on the Square." It is a really fun event, full of booths and fair food (the real reason we go)! We usually partake in a cheese on a stick, a turkey leg and if we are feeling really crazy, a funnel cake. I know, we live on the edge. It's always a fun time.
Bed rest kind of puts a kink in your usual, but we still made a great day of it. We woke up and took Natalee to the movie theater to see Puss in Boots. Our theater has a fun summer program, where on Tuesday's and Wednesday's at ten, they play a G or PG rated movie for only a dollar. Natalee is still free, so this is literally an activity to do for cheap! The nice thing about it, is we can go, and if she is having a hard time...we can leave! I don't mind waisting a dollar if it's not going to work out! Anyway, we went to see Puss and Boots. We also bought a coke and popcorn. Natalee loved the popcorn and I am pretty sure she ate most of it.
After the movie, we went and ate at McAlister's. We really love this little deli place. It's pretty new in Amarillo, but is loved by most everyone! After consuming our delicious sandwiches, and macaroni and cheese for Natalee, we headed home for naps.

This is her, "I-can't-wait-for-my-mac-and-cheese" face!
Nap time was great and needed greatly by Natalee and I! We spent the next few hours lounging at our house, just enjoying each other. Jeremy then started up the grill and went to town! It was grilling heaven! Everything I saw, I ate. Although, I couldn't eat very much! He grilled: steak, baked potatoes, fresh corn on the cob, stuffed mushrooms and stuffed jalapenos! It doesn't get much better than that!! It was SO good!
Instead of hassling with the loads of people at the park for the fireworks display, my good friend Deborah invited us over to her house. She lives pretty close to the park, and you can still see them fairly well. We decided this would be a better option since I am on bed rest and all. We made a very important stop at DQ to pick up some ice cream, it was only fair since we didn't get any fair food! We met over at her house, and waited for the show to start. Natalee loved it. The entire week, Natalee has been saying, "I will see the fireworks, just like Ariel!" For those of you who don't know, there is a scene with Prince Eric on the boat where they are shooting fireworks off. She sure loves her mermaids.
Hope you all had a great 4th of July! Do you have any traditions?
