Yoo 673 - Fourth of July

My favorite memories from the Fourth of July.

Dylan and I started the day early with the company weight room all to ourselves. An empty gym is one of my favorite things. We were sporting our new lifting shoes that we'd bought on sale the prior day. They didn't add a thousand pounds to my squat, as advertised, but I like them.

After lifting we did a partner circuit with running, pushups, squats, and dips and the next morning felt like a bus had hit us. Happy memories.

Getting to the lake was fun. Here's the line of cars also going to the lake. It took us about half an hour to go one mile. We read the Declaration of Independence to pass the time. Dylan and Roscoe slept.

The hot dogs were supposed to be awesome but then Greg accidentally grabbed the turkey dogs instead of the beef dogs and they were not as tasty. Though the pretzel buns salvaged them A LOT. Also favorite, Trader Joe's Cheddar and Horseradish kettle chips and key lime pie. But not at the same time.

Roscue super loved the water, as always. He won't even acknowledge you if you try to fetch him on land, but in the water it's all he cares about. He's so motivated and will swim in circles until he finds the stick. One time I had to strategically place another stick to replace one that had disappeared so he'd come back to shore before he drowned.

Water dog.

Plus he got to play with his cousin Kyle and they're awesome buddies. And they'll just sit in the tubes and chill with us as we swim.

Best things on the planet.

The evening picnic with Greg's family. I ate too many cake balls. And deviled eggs with bacon.

Roscoe and Kyle continued their shenanigans. Until Roscoe saw a cat and decided he would rather chase after that. Then they were car buddies on our way to get fireworks and I loved it. Roscoe needs a sibling!

Lighting off fireworks.

Loved it. Happy Fourth!

Have a great day :-)
