H3O Fourth of July was so much fun. We had a great time with both sides of our family and it will definitely be a weekend to remember! Of course I had to decorate for the occasion! I had bought these cute boquets of red, white and blue flowers but...we had no vases! So, I "forced" Ben, Alex and Gary to each drink a beer around 9:00am on Saturday so I could use the beer bottles as decor and set the table for the weekend. I hung chinese lanterns over the table and added a cute flag themed pinwheel to some flowers and I think it turned out pretty cute! The Harrison's had most of the exterior of the house painted before the weekend and tons of landscaping done. The grass was held up in South Texas due to the tropical storm but, already the improvement is amazing! The firepit and sidewalks look awesome and I love the grey and white paint color scheme. More pics on the house updates at a later date.
We all took pics in our H3O shirts and just hung out. It was so fun to relax and swim, go out on the boat, play games, and EAT way too much! I made a flag fruit pizza for the occasion using this recipie from "In the Mood for Food". It was devoured on the spot.
And of course, there were lots and lots of fireworks. Alex and Mendy were our fireworks specialists / pyromaniacs and they put on a great show! We kept trying to get a pic of Alex holding a Roman Candle but, kept laughing too hard because he got burned so much...that we made him do it over and over.
I hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July, 2010!
