Our Fourth of July weekend has been full of celebrations and libations as we took in the second annual Ryan Bart Independence Day Bash in Cedar Park. Considering the Barts have only been in Texas a little over two years, they know a LOT of people. I think 50-60 people showed up at their party, which was highlighted by free-flowing beer, brats, yard games, and debauchery. Lauren of course wasn’t real enthused about spending her day surrounded by us drunken fools, but she was a good sport and left me to carouse with the gang well into the evening.
Saturday I again tried to sell the pickup, fielding a handful of offers and showed it to a few more interested folks. Everyone that has seen it so far has left super interested, and then I never hear from them again. I guess no one in a major metropolitan area has much use for a 20-year-old farm truck. All the people who have seen it so far have come from out of town. Meanwhile, Lauren cheered on her beloved Netherlands team in World Cup action as they knocked out Costa Rica.
At night we were invited out the Round Rock Express game vs. the Nashville Sounds with our friends the Andersons and Viviritos. Our local Rangers affiliate won, and after the game there was a pretty decent fireworks display.
