This is Mike. Husband to Nicole (mastermind of this blog, and my Lover), and father of my two awesome children Savannah and Cole.
On the fourth of July, we walked down the street about a mile to our favorite park, Conejo Valley Community Park. Nicole and I sat on the grass, eating store bought ceasar salad and Dorito Ranch chips, while the children played on the play sets and ran wild for hours. The city of Thousand Oaks sponsored the event, which included a live band playing American themed music, and booths selling popcorn, hotdogs, and our favorite, snow cones (cherry flavored). Nicole and I took it easy and spent several hours just lying around while the kids played non stop until the sun went down. When it was dark, the fireworks show started, and was pretty well done. It was worth the time waited to hear Cole yelling "Whoa" and "Wow" after every explosion, and Savannah screaming, "Pink, Blue, Green" and so on with each different color of firework. As Nicole has already pointed out in previous messages, we truly love our new home and community hear in the T.O.
