What a wonderful 4th of July!

Well, what a relaxing 4th of July it was for me!  Our family picnic is on Saturday so it was just the hubs and I and the furry boys.

   We were just going to hang around the house and cook some hot dogs and enjoy the day.  That plan lasted for about 20 minutes!!  My daughter and I bought my hubs a smoker a few years ago for father's day and so began the obsession.  I'm pretty sure he has a man crush on Myron Mixon (BBQ Pitmasters).  So, of course, we had to run to the butcher shop and get some meat for him to smoke.  I'm surely not complaining though, because I reap the benefits every weekend at suppertime!  Yesterday it was beer can chicken love!
  While we waited for the chicken we set up the TV out on the patio to watch a little of this...
 while enjoying a little of this...
 All in all, it turned out to be a great day!  And on the agenda for today is much of the same things along with maybe some of this...
Boy, do I love four day holiday weekends!  I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday as much as I am!
