We had plans to have a BBQ by the pool for my birthday, but about 4pm, we had a huge thunder/ rain storm. It was awesome, but almost put a damper on the plans. It lasted for about half an hour, then it was beautiful outside and we headed to the pool.

For 4th of July we decided to take an impromtu trip to Albuquerque. It was about a 5hr car ride and it actually wasn't that bad of a drive. Billy, Kassandra, Matt, and I rode in Billy's car and my mom, dad, and Samantha rode in my dad's truck. We stayed at Kirtland AFB and it was a terrible hotel. We went to the Albuquerque Zoo on Saturday the 3rd and that night, the town nearby, Rio Rancho put on a pretty awesome fireworks show. We came back home on the 4th.
