Happy 4th of July!

We had so much fun this holiday spending time together as a family.  Nothing major, just some friends, the park, a picnic basket.

We got to have breakfast with these kids in the morning.  Oh my word was Avinash excited to see Nisha again.  The cutest was watching little Roshan follow Avinash around- he really seems to look up to him as the 'older' boy.  And, no I couldn't get any non blurry pictures of them facing the camera.  This shot pretty much says it all anyway.

In the evening we went to the Long Center park for a picnic and music from the Symphony before the fireworks started.  I think this picnic basket is still one of my favorite gifts from Ryan ever.  I do really miss not being able to walk to the park like in Houston.  Parking (and getting home) was not fun!

We had fun while we were there though.  I made tomato basil and mozzarella hoagies.  Hey, I'm from PA, what do you expect? A baguette? We also had grilled corn with butter and lime and tons of fresh fruit. 

Do you think they liked the watermelon?

This kid was covered in strawberry stains.  I'm telling you, he still tries to play Holi everyday.

Isn't this the sweetest? Love that five seconds every day when they get along.  Of course, she doesn't know what to do with herself when he's away either.  OH the tears while he was at camp this week.

The fireworks lasted 13 minutes.  Just enough time to gulp down our shaved ices. 

And, yes, we were sitting behind a pole because we had no idea which direction the fireworks would be coming from.

Happy 4th of July everyone! Hope you have a great weekend too!


  1. Avinash is becoming a stud! He was always a good looking kid, but he's definitely growing into his looks. And we all know he's got the charm ... deadly combination! Girls watch out!

    Nandini is getting so big! I LOVE love love the picture of the two of them holding each other. I can't wait to see them again!

  2. love the pics esp nandini holding onto avinash
    happy 4 th to all of you as well

  3. Hey..did you know Austin is like "the" biggest hub of artists.
    I follow many of them (blogs)

    They have these painting trips in the city once in a while and you may find a bunch doing that
    Its so much more exciting to be able to do that. Hope you enjoy this new place...and wish I was there too (for my own reasons ;))
