Happy 4th of July - Day After

How was everyone's 4th of July? Hope it was a blast and you all got to eat some good food and see some great fireworks. My day was spent curled up in bed sick to my stomach. I know, what a great way to spend the 4th of July. I did however, get caught up on my sleep. That was the only perk of the day really.

Around 7:30pm the boyfriend and I headed over to our friends house to meet up and then go watch some fireworks. The original plan was to go downtown and watch them from the rooftop. That plan got changed to going to the beach and bar hopping. We carpooled down to the beach to go to the Strand (shopping area). The whole area was really dark and there was no one around. I should have guessed that they would all be at the beach waiting for the fireworks. Yup, we headed that way and there was nothing but traffic and about a million people parked everywhere! I did happen to get a few shots of the fireworks from the car but we weren't able to pull over anywhere and park. We continued on down the street and stopped at Denny's. We decided to try to walk to the boardwalk but that was a failed attempt because it was about 1 mile down the road and one of my friends was wearing heels.  We turned around and decided to just eat at Denny's and hang out there for a bit. I think we left Denny's at 11pm or maybe a little later. It took us till 1am to finally get home. It's only a 35 minute drive from our house to Galveston but the traffic was horrible. We will never do that again.

I did get a really cute picture yesterday of my baby girl.

 This girl loves her mouse!! Best investment ever was getting her some toy mice. She absolutely loves them. I do really need to clip her claws though. Look at that one!! It's long!

Well hope you all enjoyed your 4th!!
