Despite an overcast day where it drizzled then rained then drizzled again, we had a very pleasant time celebrating our nation's history this past weekend. My children swam in a friend's pool (yes, while it was raining), with teeth chattering and blue lips, enjoying every minute. I sat beneath an awning, watching them, chatting with friends, and wishing I had brought a sweater.
We ate lots of typical picnic/barbecue foodstuffs (yum), my husband learned to play to euchre and of course there were sparklers and glow sticks galore. The patriotic cake (minus 2 stripes -oops!) was made by my daughter and consumed in a flash. On our ride home, we even managed to spot a few fireworks.
Hope you had a nice 4th!
