4th of July

I was supposed to be in Minnesota for the 4th of July, but after the many trips of June I realized it was just too much to be gone again. So we stayed in Lincoln (well, kind of) for the 4th. I missed my sister's family a ton, but we made the best of it. Mom and Dad came down for a lunchtime bbq. We made bison burgers and some of us (not Steven!) had asian slaw and marinated cucumbers. Then we had some incredible brownie sundaes. We topped the day off going to the weirdest movie I've seen, Moonrise Kingdom. My mom thought it was hilarious. After the movie I made some unsuspecting teenager take our photo. Everyone was confused why I was doing this, but of course it was for the sake of the blog. 
After this stunning photo, Steven and I headed to Seward, Nebraska home of "the 4th of July" to visit with Amy and watch their fireworks show.

Disney World

We took a belated 1st anniversary trip to Disney World last week. It was so nice to get away, just the two of us. You would think life would have slowed down when we move to Nebraska but we are keeping extremely busy. I'm not complaining, though, I love being busy and I love living in Nebraska. However, this trip was a great recharge.
Steven wanted to get a silhouette done while we were in the Magic Kingdom. This artist was amazing. The picture below is the result.

We saw the Electrical Light Parade our first night at Magic Kingdom. It was been years since I'd seen it.

Magic Kingdom has a new show before the fireworks. It's called Memories and they use the castle as a backdrop. It was a very cool show.

The "wishes" fireworks!

We had a little breakfast with Mickey.

And, of course, ate an anniversary cupcake at 8:30 in the morning.

Steven's "other" girlfriend.

Someone was extremely happy to have his parents home. He also got the cutest haircut while at the kennel. We just love him!
