Celebrating America!

The Hill House Krewe had a day on the bay for the 4th of July!

It started with a trip out on the water:
Where we passed the many restaurants of the Kemah boardwalk:
(that photo was taken on the way back).

While we were on the water, Chris prepared a delicious meal of steak and mashed potatoes and we enjoyed eating it while watching the sunset.

Then, my favorite part... fireworks!
There are many different marinas and yacht clubs surrounding Kemah and they each have their own fireworks show. We stayed out on the water and enjoyed watching SEVEN of them!! From our vantage point we could enjoy the clubs closest to us as well as many around the water-- it was like we were surrounded!
Here's a photo of K-Dog, Gordon and I enjoying the ride back in:
Chris had the next day off of work, so we went on an "all day date" that included lunch, dinner, and a movie. We also made stops at Williams Sonoma and Crate & Barrel where we used up the last bit of our wedding gift money-- we made that last for over two years! It was so nice to spend a relaxing, non-agenda filled day with Chris-- something we often forgo in our busy lives-- and we are looking forward to making that more of a priority!
