Fourth of July/New Camera

As I’m sure everyone knows, yesterday was the Fourth of July and this past weekend my parents stopped by Austin to give me and my wife-to-be our wedding present from them: a Nikon D5000 SLR Digital Camera. I’ve never had one of these before so I’ve been salivating over the opportunity to use it. Here are a few shots of me starting out. Enjoy!

Brittany and I started off the day with a good hearty breakfast.

Frying some bacon for breakfast









This is how every Fourth of July should begin

Then I took a walk around her apartment complex to see what I could find.





























That evening, we had dinner with our good friends, the Padulas.

Dinner with the Padulas














Orange-glazed chicken, creamy mac and cheese, and fresh garden salad











American flag cheesecake










Unfortunately, this year there was a burn ban in Travis Country. This was as close as we got to seeing live fireworks.









Petey is a true celebratory patriot.
