the final countdown

I hope everyone is having a Happy 4th! We had swim class with Liam this morning and he did so amazingly well. I'd like to say we have a whole day planned with fun activities but the truth is we are in a time crunch! We have our house appraisal on Friday and closing the following Friday. We have a bunch of little repairs we need to do around the house and still lots of packing to do. Plus, I have the worst sore throat of life! I could barely sleep last night because the pain kept waking me up. Alex is super busy finishing up various freelance projects so he is also getting very little sleep trying to keep up with everything. 

I know this is just a season in our lives but I'm kinda ready for all of this to be over with. I'm ready to relax a little bit and eat some of my Abuelita's delicious cooking. 

Anyway, we will make time to go over to our neighbors' house for a little BBQ later this evening. I've been dreaming of sinking my teeth into a juicy cheeseburger for days now and I will finally get my wish tonight! Hope everyone else gets to enjoy yummy food and pretty fireworks today (although I can't lie, I'm not a huge fan of fireworks). Be blessed, friends. 

Here's a little photo collage from a trip we took to the pool last week:
