Back to reality

We had a great 4th of July weekend.  I had 4 days off.  Friday I drove to LA to see the NKOTBSB concert.  Yes, I went and yes I loved every minute of it!  I went with my favorite people on the planet.

Then we drove back home Saturday to watch Jeffrey's All-Star game!  They won but I felt bad for the little team they played.  The amount of support our little league has is tremendous.  The other team didn't even have helmets or balls.  Jeff lent them some for the game.  By the end of the game our side was rooting for the other team.  Final score was 22-1.  The true test will be tomorrow when they play their next team who will be a lot more competitive.  Don't my boys look handsome?

Sunday was spent by the pool relaxing.  We (well more like the boys) have had baseball games or practice 6 days a week for the last 2-3 weeks.  They were in need of a day to just chill out. 

I can't really explain to you how awesome the 4th of July is in my community.  The whole day is filled with events.  The morning starts with a 5k, pancake breakfast, parade, carnival and we have our own fireworks show.  The boys were in the parade this year for the All-Star team.  So JJ, Katie and I dropped them off, and took the golf cart to get a good spot to watch the parade.

Our parade has everything,  Fire trucks, police cars, car clubs, Boy scouts and girl scouts and about 100 golf carts all decked out. 

I think if you live in Rancho Murieta, the 4th of July tends to be one of your favorite holidays no matter how hot it is.  I know it is quickly becoming one of Jamie's favorite holidays.  Now it's back to the grind for a couple of days.  The boys have their next all-star game tomorrow.  Next weekend I am headed to San Diego to party with my Sister In Law for her bachelorette weekend!  Yay!!!
