4th of July

Charlie & I started out our holiday by waking up early for the Woodbridge 5k/10k run. This is just one of the many fun activites that our community hosts for the 4th of July. We decided that we'll do the run every year as part of our holiday tradition. (I already checked for next year and they do allow jogging strollers on the course!) Charlie ran the 10k while I walked the 5k with my pregnant friend Christy and her husband Tennyson. Aftwards, we went to their house for a yummy breakfast.

Later in the afternoon we met up with my family at my aunt & uncle's house in Anaheim Hills. The kids all went swimming and we had a BBQ with lots of good food. We decided to bring Cracker with us because we felt bad leaving him alone all evening and were worried he'd freak out during the Woodbridge firework show. We are becoming "those people" who bring our dog with us everywhere we go! But everyone seemed to like having him at our 4th of July gathering. And he enjoyed crawling around under the table eating any crumbs that happened to drop.

Just before dark we headed over to the park to watch the firework show. We thought we had a great spot, but as the show got started we soon realized that the show didn't have much height to it. About half the show was hidden behind the trees! And poor Cracker was terrified by the fireworks.



We had a nice 4th of July and enjoyed having a day off of work!

We have decided to name him Isaac. We're still working on a middle name, but at least we have the first and the last names figured out!
