Normally we try to have a big ol' bash on the 4th at the Casa de Chubby because the parade route is right outside our door. It is a so great to have where it is we have food, drinks, and entertainment. This year the party was on the small side but nevertheless still tons of fun. We even had a special guest, the Mayor of Minneapolis marched his posse through our house prior to the parade starting. I offered him and his underage kids a cocktail, but they declined. I think he wanted to stay clean for while he runs for the Governor's seat or maybe it was because it was only 9AM.
Here is a few pics from the parade.
Chubby Hubby sporting a gift from the Mayor's visit. I was really impressed with his behavior, he didn't yell "Carly, get the gun....there is a Liberal in the house!" (Just kidding...he is not THAT bad)
Diva mixing up some margaritas getting ready for the party. Just kidding it was only Kool-aid, the margaritas were already mixed up by the other children.
This is what the streets looked like at 8AM....the parade didn't start until 1PM and there were people sitting in their chairs.
BFF's Hubby practicing his pose for the next stud muffin book of the decade book. He is sporting a new mustache. Young Tom Seleck? Yes?I totally see the resemblance. BWAH!
Then of course there were fire works. My hubby walked up to the park with #2 to view them and I stayed home with #1 and Diva and watched them from the neighbors house. After that I collapsed into bed. It was a long exhausting day but it was a lot of fun!
Hope everyone had a fun and safe 4th of July. Until next year....Independence Rocks!
Oh yeah.....Sunday I ran 7.27 miles semi hungover. It was a GREAT run and I am not quite sure how I pulled it off. As far as time I am not sure. It was slow 11-12 minute miles, but I didn't care because the run was that good.
