Happy Fourth of July!

It is already starting out to be a wonderful Fourth of July in Subic Bay! Sam took the day off work... it's not raining (yet)... and the kids are sleeping late! In my book, this is a perfect start to our morning.

We will celebrate today, by joining a few friends on our weekly Friday morning hike. We usually hike for about 3 hours. It's great exercise and an excellent way to see the Philippine jungle up close and personal. Last week, we hiked through grass and shrubs so tall, we all had to lift our arms up over our heads so our exposed skin wouldn't get all scratched up.

After our hike, I need to run some errands, one of which hopefully includes buying a new pair of tennis shoes. With all the walking/jogging/hiking/frisbee/tennis I've been doing lately, the tennis shoes I brought from home are pretty much hanging on by a thread. They are in sad shape! And, I am living in the best place to buy new athletic shoes. Subic Bay has not one, not two, not three, but FOUR different athletic wear outlet stores. I don't know what's taken me so long to make this purchase, but I think I'll celebrate America's Independence with a new pair of running shoes. And, maybe some wrist bands for tennis. I'm tired of sweat dripping down into my eyes.

Tonight, Sam & I are going on a date. We just haven't decided what we'll do yet. The only movies showing here are Hancock & Kung Fu Panda. We've already taken the kids to see Kung Fu Panda, so we're thinking of watching Hancock. Or, maybe taking a trip to Clark to see Wanted. Has anybody seen either of these movies?

I hope you all have a wonderful Fourth of July holiday when it rolls around there in the states. Enjoy the fireworks that I will definitely miss! Enjoy your independence as an American citizen! Show your gratitude to those who daily ensure your freedom remains!

Go see Wall-e. It's probably the most beautiful and poignant film this year.
