This year for the 4th of July, we spent a week down in Newport Beach with Jordan's family. We had a blast. The weather was terrible and I think we saw about 6 hours of sun the whole week. We did lots of shopping and ate several nice restaurants and lived the luxury life. We wished we did more swimming but it was too cold. Who would have thought it would be freezing at the beach in July. The best part of the trip was spending time with Jordan's family before we moved to Texas. We had a great time and look forward to spending the 4th next year in Newport again as it is a start of a family tradition.
