Our 4th

Many of you probably wonder what we did for the 4th of July. We've been enjoying spending time at home lately and trying to save money. Friday night we went to Payton's Place in Gilbert to check it out. I was craving wings and I knew a bar would be able to satisfy that craving. I ordered the medium wings and they were awesome! They come in the size of a dozen, so the medium was plenty hot for me and it took me a while to finish all those wings. When we arrived it was our surprise there was a couple of guitar strumming guys setting up to play. Bill and Sam were their names and they were hilarious! We were pretty much the only people left in the bar so it was like our own personal show.

Would you believe it actually rained on Friday night!?! It rained for more than 10 minutes and the wind was mighty powerful. This is really the first storm we've seen since living here and it's the beginning of monsoon season. We'll finally get to see what this monsoon season is all about. It is a major thing down here I guess. I'm sure the one thing that doesn't help when it rains is that they don't have gutters here, so there's no where for the rain to go.

Saturday we slept in and laid around until about 1 then decided to head out to the grocery store, Lowes and the Tropical Smoothie Cafe. I made us a late lunch then we laid around some more until we decided to head to go to Red White and Brew for 4th of July supper. They had a guy there singing with his guitar and they were offering a free shuttle to and from the Tumbleweed fireworks. We were all pumped to do that and see the fireworks, but we realized that we didn't want to have to wait for the shuttle to pick us up the show. It was really hot out and I didn't feel like waiting for a ride and deal with traffic. So we headed back home and watched Neil Diamond's fireworks in Boston.

Sunday J installed the new outdoor fan. The one that came with the house was all warped and was probably not made to be outdoors. We were given a brand new fan from some friends of Uncle B, which worked out perfectly since we were about to buy one. J is becoming quite the fan installer! Now that he has the curtains down pat. haha
