while jeremy was BBQ-ing, I made the traditional Loaded Baked Potato Salad and Amy baked a fabulous fruit pizza with some raspberries and blackberries that I couldn't resist at Costco the day before. We also went for a little joy ride.
We dropped off mom and amy at airport later in the afternoon, but it's too bad they left before the big firework show at the Pier, because that is my favorite thing about the 4th of July in HB.
my dad drove down from Fresno to drop Jacob off at the airport too, since Jacob was spending the week with my dad in Fresno.
We topped of the day by riding our bikes down to the Pier. It's pretty cool down there, because they block off PCH (the street in front of the beach/pier) so everyone is riding bikes through the street.
We plopped right down on the median (or neutral ground as we call it in 'Nawlins) to watch the firework show.
We saw Corb (jeremy's old roomie) and Jenn and watched fireworks with them. I didn't bring the big camera (see title post) but Jenn did, and got some cool pics with hers. (i'm still waiting on those.)
on a sorta random side note, because this photo was included in my mobile downloads from above, i saw this beautiful bed in a window display at bloomingdales when i was shopping with my mom earlier in the week. needless to say, i love it so much and now want my bedroom to look like this. (i figured it wasn't so random, since its blue and white)
