Last weekend was a long weekend because of the 4th of July holiday. As you all know, during long weekends the tourist attractions will be full of people. It is very difficult to find a good parking spot too. So we decided to explore local events and do some shopping.
Saturday Adi and I were at home in the morning and my husband went out to run some errands. We had fun watching tv, sketching with his new drawing pad and crayons.
In the evening we went out to a local event held as an early celebration of the 4th of July.
It was a live music show followed by fireworks. I haven’t been to a live music event in a very very long time. I enjoyed it very much. Adi was dancing throughout and I too joined him for a while.
It started getting very cold late in the evening and I layered up Adi with a sweatshirt, jacket, cap, gloves, and even an extra jogger.
We also had food trucks there where my husband stayed in line for 2 hours and did not get any food!! Then we had to order dinner on the way back home.
As the music ended the fireworks started and it was beautiful. We all enjoyed it a lot.
I made fried garlic green beans as a side for lunch. We ate a lot of strawberries. My husband and I tried to cook a new recipe in the afternoon. The main course (jowar roti) experiment was a disaster! But the side dish came out tasty. Jowar roti is not that easy to make on the first attempt. So we were okay with it and we will try again until we finish the flour we bought 😀 In the evening we went out for a nice walk. It was a relaxing day.
Monday, the 4th of July
Adi is getting taller and his clothes are not fitting him anymore. Also, I saw some good offers for the 4th of July. It was good timing and we decide to go shopping.
We got some nice clothes at carters and Walmart for Adi. Kohls had some nice offers going on and I bought jeans and a shirt for myself. My husband got a couple of shirts and some pajamas.
I had fun trying on some dresses. I could not find anything that I liked and fit me well!
Then we went to Burlington which is right next to Kohls. I got a pair of blue striped trousers. I never got something like this before and I do not have any top that goes with it yet! Let me see how that works out for me! Adi got a new pair of shoes.
The weather was nice and the sky was beautiful with a lot of clouds. We enjoyed walking outside, eating ice cream and driving around.
The 4th of July long weekend was a lot of fun with live band, fireworks, food, and shopping!
Do you like to attend live music? What do you do during long weekends usually? Let me know in the comments below.
I sure enjoyed the live music and I am thinking to attend local events more often.
