The Last Ten Fourth of Julys

Yeah yeah I'm a day late. I had this great idea last night while watching fireworks and by the time I got home all I wanted to do was collapse into bed.

    Made an apple pie from scratch for the first time. Watched 1776, ate hot dogs and hamburgers. Went to the Corpus Christi aquarium for fireworks.

    Visited Codys friends there. We ate really good pancakes and it rained but we saw some fireworks anyways.

    We were going to see the symphony play at the park but it rained so we stayed home and watched the fireworks from the apartment balcony.

    I was housesitting for a family friend who had two dogs, an angry parrot, several cats and some chickens. My family stopped by with Whole Foods fried chicken and we watched National Treasure. I watched 1776 later that night with the dogs.
