happy birthday america!

 The 3rd:
To begin the odd middle of the week holiday, Tison and I tried a new restaurant called Sabores. It is traditional Dominican cuisine. I ordered the Parcha, a passion fruit drink, to start and also ordered one to go. I really I liked it! I could be wrong, but I don't think they serve alcohol here. Our appetizer was the pastelito de pollo that comes with a green sauce. This reminded me of a chicken meat pie. The waitress warned me that the sauce was spicy, but I didn't think so. It was a good dipper.
For our entrees we ordered:
Tison really enjoyed the ox tail and I ate about half of my pepper steak with bell peppers and plantains. We enjoyed the newness, but I wouldn't call it our new favorite restaurant. 

 The 4th:
Well, sometimes you can make a plan, but it doesn't mean said plan will go accordingly. With no alarm set, I slept until 11:00 am, lazily drank coffee on the couch writing a list of museums I wanted to go to. When we finally left the house towards Norton Art Gallery we were in for a surprise.
It was closed! Duh, Lindsey- it's a national holiday. Probably all the museums I wanted to visit were closed. So instead we went to visit Tison's parents and drove Sonic for a hey batter batter blast. yummy! Then we went to see Lauren, David, and Hudson.
Cutest-kid-ever! He just amazes me. Every time I get to see him he has learned something new. I love watching his personality emerge from baby to toddler. After pool and slide time, we went to visit our friends Cory and Shelley for some hot dogs, beer, and fireworks - all American classics.
