Independence Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful Independence Day! We had a nice relaxing morning followed by a very busy afternoon. We just hung out at the house all morning and Brandon made a yummy brunch. He even made some Scooby Doo waffles with my Scooby Doo waffle iron.

Then after naps, we loaded up the car and headed to Seguin. Brandon's uncle Jimmy had his 60th birthday, so the Hajek side of the family had a big party for him. His daughter, Misty was also in from Canada to celebrate, so we got to visit with her. It was the first time I met her even though we talk on facebook quite a bit. The kids enjoyed running around and playing with the other kids, especially cousin Zachary.

Then after a yummy bbq dinner, we packed back up and headed to Austin and decided to check out the city of Austin fireworks. We parked in Zilker and walked over to find a spot in the grass. The kids were excited and loved it. In the past years, they have always been sleeping or about to fall asleep by this time, so they actually enjoyed them this year. About halfway through the show, they were ready to go home though.
