What a wonderful weekend! Despite working 24 hours from Saturday to Monday, we were able to squeeze in a ton of fun 4th of July activities. There was a baseball game, a beer garden, dinners with old and new friends, brats and beer on a rooftop, and plenty of fireworks. After a gloomy and cool start to the season, this weekend's weather and activities finally made it feel like it's really summer!

Bought the shell for $3 at Whole Foods (straight from the back of the bakery),
which made this such a simple dessert to pull together.
|Kane County Cougars-- a local minor league team.|
|Awesome fireworks after the game!|
|We finally made it to the rooftop at Gene's, and I can't wait to get back.|
|What's more American than some good craft beer?|
Now just a few days of work, then we're L.A. bound for a little vacation! I can't wait to hang out at the beach, to eat plenty of tasty food, and to catch up with my California relatives. Anyone have L.A. suggestions on what we should do?
