Best & Brightest | Celebrate!


I spent last night watching an impressive fireworks show next to James and Betty, who were exclaiming at each explosion, “oh, that looks like a ______!” (including, but not limited to: okra, hamburger, hearts, faces, etc.)

One of my more interesting 4th of July experiences was spent in the Sydney airport. We stopped off at McDonalds to celebrate, and were unimpressed with the teeny tiny drinks with no ice and no refills. America really is where it’s at people.fireworks(source)

As you’re in between a parade morning and a backyard BBQ this weekend, here are some fun links from the week::
