Fourth of July!

Good morning! I hope everyone had a fabulous Fourth of July!
I really wanted to post yesterday, but we started the festivities around noon so it was best that I stayed away from all social media and electronics.. Ahem..

Anyways, It was finally a beautiful day! We've been having so much rain and colder evenings this summer, so when the sun pops out, I take full advantage of that and bike down to the beach to catch some rays and people watch. We scored the perfect spot to have a picnic on this cement peninsula where we sat and had some food and drinks in the sun while we watched all the volleyball players and parties ensue on the shore nearby.
We aren't used to this sunny weather, so I packed some SPF 30 accordingly and we STILL managed to get a little toasty under the hot sun.

Once the sun went down, you could see a complete panorama of the chicago skyline. Everywhere you looked in miles and miles in every direction, there were fireworks going off in every neighborhood and surrounding suburbs. It was incredible!
Definitely going to rest and recover today and maybe take a mini road trip to the suburbs later to bird-sit. I hope everyone had a safe holiday weekend!
