My 4th of July and a Winner

I loved hearing about all the plans you had for the 4th!  Now for my turn. My husband and I attempted to go birding at the same place we went for our first date. However, when we got there, the roads were closed - due to flooding. Luckily, we were able to take a road on a hill. Unfortunately, there weren't many birds. We did get some pictures of how wet it is - this is the river by the refuge. I wish I had a picture from last year to show the difference, but there is a LOT more water.
So we drove up on the hill and looked around. When I got out to take this picture, I was ATTACKED by flying red bugs (ants I am assuming) so we pretty much stayed in the car. Didn't want our son to get swarmed. On the way back home we did stop by a lake and were able to see some birds. I'll be sharing those next week ;).

We then went back home and had leftovers for dinner (as we had the grilled meal the day before.)

Laundry & dishes. Dinner @ Chilis with friends and family. Tried out a new frozen yogurt place for dessert and watched a fireworks show parked on the side of the road. So fun.
