Our First Fourth

For Independence Day 2011, our first holiday as Mr. and Not Legally Yet But Sometime This Week Mrs. Wheeler, we wanted to do something special--something other than just sit at our wonderful new house and do yucky chores. So the plan was to go swimming at my parents and then have a wonderful steak and baked potato dinner. I waited in delicious anticipation the whole weekend.

Well, it almost happened the way we planned. We never did actually get to go swimming--in fact, we kind of substituted it with shopping, which I was pretty ok with. But there was thankfully no change of plans in the menu--we totally got to eat steak and the very best baked potato I've ever had in my entire life. We then wrapped up the evening watching some fireworks at the Shelley's.

I love living in the USA and being an American citizen. I am so grateful that we were able to celebrate Independence Day with our friends and family, and I hope that God continues to have his hand on our country.

Independence Day is not New Years, but if it were, I would make a resolution to wear more makeup. I spent the entire weekend bare-faced. Sorry, brand new husband.

In advance, the only good pictures I took were the outdoor/food ones, so I hope you're not reading this hungry...

....because these pictures are delicious.

Dad loves hot dogs more than steak.

Married feet :)

Fireworks can be an amusing distraction from playing with a milk jug.

Hope everyone had a nice 4th!
