The Summer is set on cruise control after Fourth of July Weekend. If the photos tagged and featured from on our Monday’s What We Did Post are any indication, it was one for the record books. This weeks events are a hodgepodge of civic, soccer and music-related ones. Pretty much the stuff we do best. Check 'em all out below.
