Happy 4th everyone!!!

We are just about all fireworked-out here, we watched the local display on the golf course from our deck on Saturday, then on Sunday we went to Pikes Peak International Raceway and watched the racing, a concert, and more fireworks....tonight, if we still haven't had enough fireworks, we will go to the display in Colorado Springs :)

We still don't get invited to any neighbourhood parties though...not even our next-door neighbours who we are very good friends with - I think that because we're British, they feel awkward about inviting us Maybe we should have a big party ourselves next year and invite them
