4th of July Celebrations

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July.We started celebrating Tuesday night by attending Pops in the Park with some of our friends. Pops in the Park is a summer tradition here in Charlotte where people can set up a picnic on the lawn for an outdoor orchestral concert. In honor of Independence Day they put on an American themed concert Tuesday night with music and fireworks.

Before we left I put together a bean dip that was both easy to make and tasty.

In the mix:- 1 15 oz. can black beans- rinsed and drained
- 1 cup grilled corn
- 1/2 cup chopped red onion
- 1/4 cup diced avocado
- 1 tbsp good olive oil
- salt and pepper

We packed up our cooler, blankets and other picnic supplies to meet our friends Rob and Katie early in order to get a good spot. It was insanely hot when we got there so after we set out our blankets we decided to grab a drink inside with the AC before our other friends arrived.

Despite the heat we had a great time talking, laughing, singing, eating, and drinking.
