We love America!

Just like any good American family, we love the 4th of July around the Behnke household. Last year we stayed at the Park Hyatt in the city to kick off the holiday so we kept the tradition going this year. Blake loves a good hotel and I can't complain either. Park Hyatt does it right. Thank you points!
Entry to our suite
Random room no one ever uses
Best sheets in the world
Man I LOOOVE a good bath. And this one takes the cake. Heaven.

We had a delicious dinner in the hotel with our friends Ben and Holly at the Blue Duck Tavern.
And then we played lots of Candy Crush and watched cable TV. Livin the life!

Unlike Blake, I possess the talent to sleep in. Poor kid woke up at 6 am. (?!?)
After patiently waiting for me to wake up (thank you black out curtains) we headed 
down for breakfast at Blue Duck. 
Shortbread strawberry french toast anyone?

After working off the breakfast (double points for working out on a holiday, right?), we 
headed to the indoor pool. Let's be honest, indoor pools are just kinda weird.
We didn't stay long.

When you get married, you get to teach each other stuff. And I have now properly taught Blake to appreciate a good slurpee. It's all about the layering.
How can you celebrate the 4th without a slurpee? It would just be unamerican frankly. 

I made treats to take to the firework show. Muddy Buddies. 
Again, so American. And also a Behnke favorite. 
Our friends Holly and Ben picked us up and even dropped us off to save seats at 
the Air Force Memorial. For the win! 
Hope you all had a great 4th of July! Go America!
