Happy Birthday, 'Merica!

 As the great President Ronald Reagan would say:
1. A people free to choose will always choose peace.
2. Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have.
3. Democracy is worth dying for, because it’s the most deeply honorable form of government ever devised by man.
4. Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
5. How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.

Here are some quick photos of our 4th of July photoshoot in the side yard of our house :-)

Dannika and I were invited to go to the house of one of our friend's parents up in Tustin to hang out at the pool today, but we decided with all the crazy drunk drivers out there on the road today, it'd be safer to stay in, watch movies, eat pizza, and work out (yes...I work out on holidays!).
We're hoping to catch some fireworks right outside our house....and if not, we won't be too disappointed.

Thank you to all my brothers and sisters that are overseas fighting to make days like today possible.
You are ALWAYS in my thoughts and prayers.

And lastly...
I went out last night on my FIRST girls' night out since Nick has been gone!
My friend Kim and I decided that we needed to watch Magic Mike.
umm...Channing Tatum...yes!
Thank you to Sunny (Kim's hubby) and Matt (Kari's hubby) for watching the kids so that the mamas could go get "wild".
Poor guys...we left them all alone at home with 3 toddlers and 2 newborns...I can't help but laugh.
Thankfully, the children were alive and well when we got back.
I had such a blast.
It was SO nice to just get away from "life".
When your life consists of work and a toddler, it can get a little stressful.
Kim, Kari, and I met up with Kim's older sister Molly and her friend Blanca at Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner and drinks.
Of course dinner ended with tequila shots...
All of us were 28 and up with kids at home with husbands babysitting...
A buncha middle aged women doing tequila...what is going on here?! lol.
It's mom's gone wild!
I ordered a cosmo that turned out to be extremely weak.
I told the waitress that it tasted like juice, and something I would drink to get drunk off of in high school.
I think I even mentioned that it was one step above Boone's Farm.
She laughed and said, "Man, I wish my mom would go out have fun like this."
 Was she really comparing me to her probably 40 year old mother?!?!
I had to stop her, and make sure she knew, that I was only 28, and I was NOT old enough to be her mother.
She profusely apologized and gave me a nervous

Magic Mike....

I only wanted to see Channing Tatum.
Let's just face it, ladies....
He isn't too hard on the eyes.
All I have to say about Magic Mike is...

It was a compelling storyline....
Kinda like how guys like Hooters for their wings....
