Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July! A holiday smack in the middle of the week when you have to work the couple days before and after can be a little strange, but we also enjoyed the heck out of it.
It started with sleeping in until 8:30(oh the days when I thought that was getting up early) and, before changing out of our PJ’s, drove to Dunkin Donuts for a morning iced coffee and donuts. Seriously there’s no better combo then donuts and perfectly sweetened iced coffee. At least not in my book.
Then we took Nola to one of our favorite neighborhoods and walked her for a while before it got way too hot to be outside any longer. Luckily, we found a somewhat dried-up creek at that point and convinced her to lay down in the water that was left. She’s still getting more comfortable with getting in water at all, but she’s learning that laying in iced-cold water on a hot day is pretty much the best decision ever.
Red, white & blue.
After driving to a parking garage with no view of the fireworks, we found the perfect spot. We caught five minutes of an amazing view of Uptown Charlotte’s fireworks display…..with 40+ of our newest friends.
See how dirty my back window is? We can all thank Nola’s wet nose for that one.
All-in-all a fantastic 4th of July. I hope yours was wonderful as well!
