Stripes, Grilled Chicken and Fireworks.

This year's fourth of July was spent the American way - niiiice and relaxing.

Stephen and I worked on some wedding stuff (getting addresses, shopping, etc) and then went to our friend Melissa's parents' house for a BBQ! It was really fun!

Melissa's mom asked Stephen and me to help with making the potato salad. I was worried it wasn't going to turn out since neither of us had ever made potato salad before, but luckily for us, Melissa's mom took care of the hard parts and it turned out deelicious! (Which is really saying something because I'm not usually a huge fan of potato salad.) 

The BBQ not only included food, but also some fun games like an electric-wheelchair obstacle course consisting of: maneuvering around plants and cups of water, lining up and knocking over dominos, filling up a small container of water using water squirted out of a water gun, and concluding in popping a balloon with a BB gun (which I was successfully able to do on my first try ;)). [I suppose also mentioning that it was my first time ever holding/shooting a BB Gun would be considered bragging, right?...] Of course the evening ended with some fireworks, and I - for the first time in my life - lit a couple myself :) I didn't even scream or get burned - all in all I would say it was a success!

Thanks to the Littlefield's for inviting us over! 

OH what a life I live!
