4th of July

Another low-key 4th here in P-ville. The kids had some fun at swim practice in the morning with watermelon relays (and eating the watermelon). Then Young-Hoon and I squeezed in some tennis before the heat got unbearable. Then the neighborhood had a pool party, so we decided there was no need to go out in search of festivities. We had hamburgers, chips, snow cones, and frozen margaritas (from a slurpee machine! best idea ever!) While Young-Hoon and I (mostly I) enjoyed the margaritas, the kids had fun in the pool with some of their school friends. About 1/2 way through the HOA brought out the inflat-a-bull for some rodeo fun. In the beginning, there were too many kids and adults swarming the thing for our kids to get a ride. But after a while, the pool cleared out and the kids had a great time.

We got lucky with fireworks tonight as well. The last 2 years we watch the city fireworks from the outskirts of our neighborhood, but this year they moved it to a different location farther away. Luckily there were enough neighborhood fireworks that we could watch while sitting on Oscar's bed in his new room, looking out the window. All in all, just about the right level of celebration for us today.
