Fireworks on the Fourth of July!!

We went to have a wonderfully yummy breakfast this morning with the rest of the crew at DJ's....eggs, bacon, pumpkin pancakes with homemade cinnamon whipped cream, topped with pecans and caramelized bananas. Anyone that knows me already knows that I had mine plain, but enjoyed them just as much as anyone else.

While the boys were talking work, Kylie and I went outside to bask in the sun a bit. After a little while, I was putting my jeans back on, and forgot that my phone was in the back pocket. It slipped out, and fell directly onto the concrete ground, cracking and shattering the screen. Oops!!! I was bummed....BUT......secretly excited that now I had a VALID reason to go get the new one. Heehee!! Brett got one a few weeks back, and it's screaming fast.....I had a little phone envy, so now that was going to be fixed!

We made a trip to the new Apple store downtown, and 15 minutes later, I walked out with a shiny new 32GB 3GS iPhone - woohoo!! Turns out that two of the other people that were visiting this weekend did the same thing today. :)

We chilled out in the afternoon, and then braved the crowds to go to the beach to watch the Santa Barbara fireworks.

I also used my new iPhone to capture some video. You know, back when I had my old phone I never though I'd do anything else other than make and recieve phone calls with my phone....ahhh, look how far I've come! :)

Click below to launch the video I put together. :)

It was the best way that I've ever seen fireworks before. We could feel the boom in our bodies as we were laying on the sand less than 100 yards from where they were being lauched. Well, that, and I was in the arms of the man I love! :) Happy Birthday USA!!
