Tuesday night (the 3rd for those of you playing the home game), Rob and I went over to John and Katie's (new!!) house for a BBQ. Lots of good food and good friends :) (And of course... I forgot to take any photos... ugh.)
For the actual 4th, Rob and I got up early to head up to Saratoga for the Firecracker 4 (i.e. a 4 mile road race). He ran, but this time I decided to sit out and just be a supportive spectator. They had 3,000 racers, though!
Here he is at the (slightly slow) start:
We spent most of the rest of the day just relaxing and enjoying the day off... :)
To finish out the week, we headed to one of our Professor's house for a BBQ on Friday night! We both had Jack as our capstone professor and Rob also took a few other classes with him. He and his wife invited most of the grad students and some other local students, as well as all of the professors and staff from the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department - so much fun!
