The 4th of July was pretty fun as the Shiehs invited us over for a barbecue. The Wu family and Cathy's boyfriend Chris were also there. It was a full house!
The party began early in the afternoon. I joined Cathy and her friends for a walk around the neighborhood shortly after we arrived. This was the perfect opportunity to get acquainted with Dr. Wu's children and Chris.
The kids then played Fuzion Frenzy on the Xbox before everyone gathered in the living room for the new James Bond movie. Being a reboot, Casino Royale was different from the rest of the series. I liked the older films better, but that's just me. Cathy also put on Hoot and Matilda as we ate dinner.
The downside is that I didn't get to light any fireworks. Because we're all extremely busy this summer, there was no time to go out and buy them. However, I'm not going to complain as the weekend was already quite awesome.
At any rate, I should probably get back to studying for my summer English class. After all, I do want to get a scarlet "A" on my Scarlet Letter essay. :-)
