4th of July Celebration

How did you spend the 4th of July? Did you go to the beach, a barbecue, and did you go see fireworks? We went to the 4th of July Celebration held at the Olympic Training Center. It is a family friendly event, with music, dancing, children’s activities, food and of course, fireworks.

We brought our own little picnic table and chairs, and set up in the grass area. It was fun to catch up with my sister and spend time with the boys!

Afterwards, we went to my sister’s home for a visit and they gave me my birthday gifts! I hadn’t seen my sister in about two weeks and missed her. We enjoyed a margarita and chatted for a while! It was a fun fourth of July with family!

Here are some pics from our time at the event….in case you want to take  a look 🙂

Hope you enjoy your weekend!

What did you do this 4th of July?

We set up our picnic table & chairs in the grass area. That evening we gave our nephews the animal finger puppets we brought them from Mount Shasta, they played with them all evening!


My nephew was in the front yard of his home waiting to greet us when we arrived! He was waiving the flag & dressed in a red, white, & blue RL Polo shirt, very stylish & appropriate for the 4th! He also had a lei on, too cute!


There was music & dancing!


And food…..I got some tri tip & potato salad for my hubby.


It was nice to see lots of families dancing this year!


Then, the fireworks started!


My favorite part was seeing the amazement in my nephews faces!

¿Como festejaron el 4 de julio? Fueron a la playa, una carne asada, o a ver los fuegos artificiales? Nosotros fuimos a la Celebración del 4 de Julio organizada por la Asociación de Eastlake, en el Centro de Entrenamiento Olímpico.  Es un evento para toda la familia, con música, baile, actividades para niños, comida, y por supuesto fuegos artificiales.

Trajimos nuestra propia mesa y sillas, y nos acomodamos en el area de vacate. ¡Disfrute el tiempo con mi hermana y sobrinos!

Después del evento, fuimos a la casa de mi hermana y me dieron mis regalos de cumpleaños. Tenía casi dos semanas que no veia a mi hermana y la extrañaba. ¡Disfrutamos unas margaritas y platicamos un rato! ¡Fue un 4 de julio divertido, con la familia!

Aquí hay algunas fotos del evento…..por si las quieren ver 🙂

¡Ojala disfrutes tu fin de semana!

¿Qué hiciste el 4 de julio?
