Answer me this

I'm linking up with Kendra this week! I always enjoy reading her posts and figured it was time to join in. :)

1. How did you celebrate the 4th of July?

We celebrated by heading over to my aunt's house for their neighborhood parade (it's small, but includes fire trucks, police cars, etc.) We munched on raisin or chocolate banana bread and then enjoyed a nice BBQ. I love hot dogs and burgers! Burgers more, but every so often I like a hot dog. :) After hanging out with the family, we headed home for naps, and just stayed in that night and grilled kielbasa. Kielbasa from the farm where we buy our raw milk... and kielbasa that must have had a very high fat content (it was delicious, obviously) and it was smoking... and a few pieces caught on fire. Oops. I don't remember that happening the first time we bought some! We considered heading to a local park for fireworks, but didn't... and one of the neighbors down the street put on a pretty nice display that lasted about 20 minutes. I watched it from the quiet of our back porch... C wasn't a big fan of the fireworks as they were happening, but he's been talking about them ever since. ?!?

Some pics of the weekend:

Happy with Grandma....

and Granddad!

G was very excited to wave to everyone - she wasn't bothered at all by the sirens!

Enjoy it while it lasts kiddos, mama is allergic. 
(Don't tell me that there are hypoallergenic dogs. I have enough to do. ;))

2. Do you sunburn easily?
I can if I'm not careful. I don't often wear sunscreen (gasp!), but tend to build up my sun exposure as the summer goes on. If we'll be out for a long time, I'll put it on... but I gotta get some of that Vitamin D! Fortunately, if I do burn, it turns into a tan. 

3. Hot dogs. Yay or nay?
I eat them (see above). I prefer burgers, and I don't like hot dogs boiled, only grilled. I like them either with mustard, ketchup and relish, or with sauerkraut.

4. Have you ever personally set off fireworks?
Nope. No desire to! The closest I've been is at a party when I was a kid, an once in high school I think my cousin set a few off. But I don't think they were that big.

5. Have you ever jumped off the high dive?
Yup! All the time as a kid! But the pools near us don't have high dives anymore. I told C if he would practice floating with DH this weekend that I would go off the (lower) diving board, but he wasn't tempted. Oh well. The public pool we belong to has a slide... and I really want to go down that. And I have gone down this slide... the Lightning Express at Sandcastle water park... it's 60 feet high. (not me in the picture). I'd do it again. :)

6. Do you do anything weird in your sleep?
I don't think so... but then again, I'm sleeping. ;)
I know I move around a lot, and it takes me forever to fall asleep, while DH is asleep in seconds. Jealous. :)
