Long weekends fly!

I hope this finds everyone rested and relaxed. In the US we had a long weekend to celebrate the 4th of July. Thursday night we headed out to Temecula to play the slot machines. The place was really busy, we played for a little while then headed home.

Friday, after sleeping in slowly started the day. We had been invited to a BBQ, so I made Garlic Bread and Macaroni and Cheese. Both turned out good. Then we all headed to the park to watch the firework display. We had six children with our group, which always makes it interested. They are so adorable.

Saturday morning, I decided to go for a hike and get some fitness in. Then, that evening we decided to go see Hancock at the Cinerama dome in Hollywood. It is always an interesting experience going to this theatre. As we often see celebrities. Saturday night, Todd Stashwick (from The Riches), Elizabeth Berkley, and Jerry O'Connell with his brother Charlie O'Connell.

Sunday was just relaxing, just hung out and then took care of a few domestic things. Grocery shopping and such. We also started a diet. We are doing the South Beach diet, which is limiting. Not only is the diet limiting, but throw in our own eating limitations. It really forces us to be creative. Lol

Plan on heading back to the gym this week also. I hope you had a nice holiday and weekend also.

I think a diet is the last thing you need to be worried about! :-) Glad you guys had an enjoyable weekend. Looks like the weather was cooperative and the fireworks were a "blast."
