Our Fourth

Yes, I know I'm a few days late with this post! *smile*

We had a bit of a different celebration this year. Where last year we enjoyed the day with lots of celebrants and lots of activity, this year was a much quieter day. Only the Abdelaziz and Correa families joined us. It was a very hot day, so no one even opted for swimming! Josh and Joel gave horseshoes a go, but soon came in dripping in sweat. So, we all learned from them and chose to stay inside and do not much more than eat and visit. We had a superb table set before us with a choice of pulled pork or grilled tri-tip sandwiches, corn-on-the-cob, fruit salad, potato salad, chips and salsa, and raspberry lemonade. We had ice cream cones for dessert.

After our late lunch, the children, Papa, and Uncle Josh all went for their usual holiday nap.

As evening approached, we moved our visiting and eating to the park where we waited for a magnificent display of fireworks set to music in tribute to the American soldier.

The children did their best to stay cool with popsicles and a spray bottle filled with cold water.

We "snacked" on chocolate chip cookies, watermelon, honey-mustard pretzels, trail mix, rice crispy treats, and lots of water.

It finally got dark enough! Here come the fireworks!
