The 4th of July

My mom came out to Vail to help celebrate my birthday! You'll see her in some of the photos! We made breakfast and went to the Vail 4th parade on the morning of the 4th. After lunch, naps were in order for almost all of us, and then we had some of my co-workers over for a little hamburger cookout. It was a good day, and here are the photos:

Oh - first, on the night of the 3rd we saw some great fireworks.
I did not take great photos of them.

Waiting for the guests to arrive...

The food - tons of food all prepared by S and my Mom!

My princess cake!

S let LM pick out my cake this year - when they went to the bakery, he told the lady his Mommy needed a "PRINCESS CAKE" with "THREE PRINCESSES ON IT!" The lady wasn't so sure, but LM was! It was so sweet.

I bet they don't decorate too many princess cakes that say "Mommy"...

The guests!

LM provided lots of great entertainment.

I pretended to blow out the candles because we forgot to buy a lighter...

Oh - and I brought a bottle of S's wine, since it was to be ready by July 4.
Pretty tasty!

It was a fun day.

See you soon.
