We kicked off our celebration for the 4th of July on Johnson's beach. The weather was so hot, a swim in the russian river was a much welcomed relief. There is something so timeless when I'm out about in nature. It's as if time stops just for that moment.
After our swim in the river, we walked around the quaint downtown area visiting the cute shops, letting the sun dry us off.
Picked up the simplest ingredients at out market to make a delicious beverage: Peach Collins. Inspired by the lovely cupcakesandcashmere.
Fun Fact: Emily from cupcakesandcashmere was the 2nd blog I subscribed to 3 1/2 years ago before I began blogging!
Whip yourself up this lovely concoction, recipe here.
The hubs made a delicious summer dinner which consisted of corn on the cob, burgers, pinto beans, macaroni & cheese, potatoes and a couple slices of watermelon for dessert! We packed everything up and ate a family style picnic while watching the fireworks show at a park.
Happy 4th friends!
