Happy (belated) 4th of July!

I hope you all had a great 4th of July, I know I did! During the day, we had breakfast at Black Eyed Susan’s, a tradition we’ve kept for years and one I would highly recommend trying out yourself. Then we walked to Main Street for the 4th of July parade, but sadly, my camera was charging at that time. We spent the rest of the day lounging and exploring the shops until it was time for champagne and fireworks! After the show, we whipped up some margaritas and were off to celebrate. We spent the first part of our night partying with some old friends, then went dancing in town, and finished it off at around 3am with some banana bites from the Easy Street Cantina on the strip before heading home and sleeping for a fews hours. Then we packed up, headed for the ferry, and made the journey home. Whew! What a week! Here are some shots from the 4th:

Explore Nantucket

After spending the weekend in Burlington, Marissa, Hannah, and I drove six hours down to Hyannis and hopped on a ferry for two and a half hours to Nantucket! We spent the next couple of days relaxing (or recovering?) after our late nights in Burlington. We spent time in the sun on the beach, in Marissa’s backyard, and reading 50 Shades of Grey and discussing the book intermittently. I have yet to decide whether I will read the second and third of the series (let me know what you think!). Messed up books aren’t usually my cup of tea, but 50 Shades had just about as many romantic parts to it as is did screwed up ones. Here are some pics from the first couple of days:
