We had a very good 3 day weekend over the 4th of July holiday. We had fun on 2 days and one day was more of a "fix the house" type of a day. On Friday night we decided to head out to dinner at Zocalo Cafe which is a more modern than tex mex type of a restaurant. We had our trusty Groupon... yay for discounts!!! We started off with the Guacamole, which was nice and creamy. It came deconstructed which means they had the tomatoes, onions, cilantro and lime wedges on the side versus being all mixed together. We ended up just mixing it all together and enjoyed it.
As we were eating dinner, Jim noticed that people kept walking by with collapsible chairs. At first we thought maybe a park was having fire works, but then we remembered that fire works were banned this year due to the drought. After dinner we decided to check it out and followed a couple of people. We came across the sign and though... very cool! We have taken a broken TV to Bonds in the past so we are familiar with the company.
They were giving away free popcorn, hot dogs and watermelon along with the movie. We didn't have any plans so we decided to hang around and watch the movie, which was Unstoppable with Denzel Washington and Chris Pine. Apparantly they do these movies in the summer on the first Friday of each month. I forgot to check out what they are playing in August but if we are free then I'd like to go again.
The sound was really good and the picture was clear. It was neat sitting in a parking lot to watch the movie. Plus you can bring your own cooler full of adult beverages, treats, pups or kids!

Dawn had a beautiful little girl 2 months ago, Vivienne. Since she was sleeping so well I asked if I could hold her ;) No crying babies for me! She slept the entire time on my lady bumps.

Abbey was very well behaved. She met some other dogs, had a little girl constantly hug her (we ended up moving down the street because I was getting annoyed with how much she was all over Abbey).
We had a fun and eventful 4th of July!!!
