Bill and I didn't have concrete plans for much of the holiday weekend. After walking/running 18 miles on Friday, we were left pretty depleted Saturday and Sunday... but we somehow still managed to make some wonderful memories!

Saturday we spent the day relaxing but had plans to have a friend over for dinner that evening. After some shopping we went to the festival in Ping Tom Park called Cumbiasazo. It was really quite interesting! Being set in the park which is located in ChinaTown, the festival is Latin themed and featured Live Latin Music, Arts, Food and Dancing! 


After the festival we had dinner with our friend which was delicious! 


The next day was a little exploring ChinaTown and then prepping for an evening on the North Shore celebrating the 4th of July with our friend Jana! 

Bill worked tirelessly on these beautiful strawberries and me on some little chocolate cakes and it was all a hit! We had so much fun with our friends on the lake! The food was delicious and the company even better! So many laughs, fun stories, happy dogs running around, little kids... it was truly beautiful! Towards the end of the night we heard the fireworks popping off so down to the beach we headed... here are a few pics that rounded out the night!
