Happy July 4th

I love July 4th. I always have. It is such a fun and festive holiday. Not to mention that Matt and I were married on July 6th, 1997. That year was the best. We had a big July 4th bbq at my parent’s house in Kansas City and everyone went swimming. Then Saturday night we had a rehearsal dinner at a yummy bbq restaurant called Smoke Stack. And then Sunday at noon was the big day. And I mean noon. If you were five minutes late you missed the whole thing!! We were married by a judge (you know the whole Jewish/non-Jewish thing) and it was a very fast ceremony. But it was perfect. And now 11 years later we are still as happy as can be. Or at least most of the time.

But back to July 4th. We saw fireworks this year and the boys loved it. I loved watching their eyes light up as each pop sent another firework into the sky. Even though it was drizzling they still loved it, and still insisted on sitting outside to watch it all!  

Saturday night Matt and I stayed in a hotel (the Ritz!!) for our anniversary. He set it all up. We had dinner at BLT steak house, then saw a movie across the street, then stayed at the hotel, and then had breakfast in our room the next day. He also had beautiful roses waiting for me in the room. It was a perfect 11th anniversary!!
