The Fourth of July is definitely a contender for one of my favorite holidays. This year it was so nice to be able to spend it at home with family and in sunny California weather. We started off the day down in Old Town Temecula watching the parade with the Arenas' and Hughes, which is right up my alley. I love all holiday festivities. After the parade we went to brunch at Richie's Diner with everyone. After brunch we headed over to the Platts' for volleyball, swimming, BBQ, and more friends. We wrapped up the night watching fireworks on the car on a hill over looking the sports park. We're so privileged to get to live in a free country.
