Our third annual 4th of July get-together

Forgive me for being so behind with blogging these days. Thankfully we have been quite busy these past two months with friends and family visiting and trips. Hopefully within the next couple of days I'll find the time to flood the blog with pictures!

I'll begin with our trip to Houston for our third annual 4th of July get-together. The tradition took root at Bindu and Mason's Hotlanta apartment in 2004, then grew at our place in ChattaVegas last year (yes, people here really do call it that.) This year, friends and cousins from Philly, Baltimore, Atlanta, Chattanooga and Dallas converged on H-town for a week of festivities at Tobi and Joyce's abode.

Every year there are certain activities that must take place for it to be a true July 4th affair...a Madden tournament for the boys, an outing to see a super-hero movie, a baseball game, karaoke, a BBQ, card playing, a birthday celebration for Roby, Abbey, Joyce (and now Kate!), and a nice dinner out on the town! Sprinkled among these activities this year were: eating, sparklers, shopping, girly pedicures, manly gun-shooting, scary movies, swimming, and did i mention eating?

It was wonderful chillin' with all the usual suspects, plus a few new recruits! We always look forward to the next gathering soon after returning from our trip! Owen had a wonderful time and loved the attention poured on him by everyone. Can't wait for next year. Now we just have to figure out where it's going to take place. Reno
