Deep in the heart of Texas

We had a great 4th of July!
We relaxed around the house most of the morning and went for a morning walk.
Then we ventured out to a new oyster bar in town.
The patriotic outfit.
And my favorite part. The nails.
David and I before we left the house.

We were excited to try this new place.
It was different than expected and is 90% patio,
which wasn't terribly desirable in July
but would be awesome given some pleasant weather.
When we got there we thought the place was closed.
There were only 2 other people there.
But the food was good!
We split a boiled shrimp plate.
Shrimp, corn, and potatoes. Delicious.
Next time we will get the "spicy" version.
And of course its the 4th so we had to have booze.

After that we went to my parents for a little get together.
We stopped on the way out and bought some fireworks.
I have heard there are several burn bans in other areas.
We lucked out this year, though.
My parents live outside city limits so our personal show was completely legal, don't worry.

David and I had a blast playing with the fireworks!
I hope everyone had a great holiday.
Am I the only one that is a little off after the mid week break??

No, you're definitely not the only one thrown off from the mid week break! But you had Coronas, a Mexican beer on an American holiday?! Come on girl, can't drink a 'merican beer? Lol
