Our 4th of July Weekend

First off, I love three day weekends and wish I had every Friday off. This past weekend was perfection -- beach, bbqs, and good friends and family.

Friday morning my brother and his childhood friend joined us. We packed up the cooler and headed to the beach via bikes. The '48 Super Cruiser even made the trek.

Ah, the beach. we spent half the day hanging out on the beach, floating in the water and laughing with friends.

After an awesome day at the beach we bbqed back at our place before heading to the firework show.

Saturday we hiked to Round Lake via Big Meadow. It's a fairly easy hike. The pup dog had a blast running through the open meadow.

Quick pic with the hubby and Roxy. She's not one to sit too long.

Once we arrived at Round Lake we enjoyed lunch and went for a swim. The water was perfect!

Sunday we relaxed at the house and ran a few errands. All in all I would say it was a successful weekend. Nick's folks fly in Thursday so the next few weeks are going to be full of adventures. How did you spend 4th of July weekend?

  3. This is my kind of weekend! Your views at the beach are amazing, and one of the reasons I love hiking so much is because I enjoy getting to watch my pup run free and happy! So much joy :) :)
