Fourth of July

The 4th of July is right up there with my favorite holidays. The fireworks, the bar b que, the warm weather, it's all sort of magical. We had so much fun this year celebrating our nation for two days straight. Get ready for an overdose of fourth of July fun in with the Anderson's. 

Day 1:
On the third we upheld tradition and watched fireworks in my parents neighborhood at Eagleridge golf course. 
 We had a picnic and got everyone together for a fun night.

Best friends Liz and Josh joined us for the fun.
  The fireworks were beautiful and did not disappoint. Eagleridge always does such a good job we loved it.
 After fireworks we headed back to the house and had some fun with sparklers
(my personal favorite part of the 4th!)

Day 2: 

On the fourth we hosted a housewarming party bar b que with friends and family. Adam got to try out the new grill and Todd supervised. Best friend Haley and little sister Ally prepared yummy treats in my new kitchen.
The menu consisted of burgers, bar b que chicken and corn on the cob. For dessert I made a fourth of July inspired cheesecake and there were lots of yummy sides. I still can't get over how good those cherry limeades were...IBC thanks for that!
It was so fun spending the day with such awesome people.
All in all a successful fourth of July! Topped of with a second helping of fireworks.
Hope you had a great holiday as well!
