Fun on the 4th

For the 4th we were super busy. We didn't end up going to California as planned because the Jones' ended up coming here for some serious family business. We were a little bummed about not getting out of this dreaded heat but so far, it has been a super fun weekend. We had Brian Katie and Susan all Friday. Lacy was absolutely thrilled to wake up to all 3 cousins in her family room. Then around 5ish everyone gathered at my parents for a nice night of steak and swimming. Oh man it was the best steak I've had in a long time!
Then after our BBQ we went with Patrick and Chaz to Patricks office for an AWESOME view of the Tempe Town Lake fireworks. It really was amazing! He works just a few blocks from the lake on the 7th floor facing the lake. With a balcony to go and view it all. We really got the royal treatment. There was nobody else around us, it was silent and there was a nice cool breeze. We went along with Chaz's dad Randy (it was actually HIS office) and all her siblings. We are so greatful they invited us, we really enjoyed the show. I'm suuure we had the best view of the show. Better than anyone at the lake. We were all alone!!
Once again.. the Browns get spoiled :)
