4th Of July

Caroline is here and we're ready for the 4th! Went to the grocery tonight for a few items I forgot on my first trip. Ready for a day in the kitchen tomorrow making all sorts of goodies for her stay....Worlds of Fun tomorrow evening....and then fireworks galore on Saturday. Hope you all have a fabulous holiday. Stay safe and give thanks to God for living in this great country!

Always such a moving sight to see.....our prideful flag....I have yet to hear our national anthem without tearing up.

Lots of recipes to conquer....some old.....some new. All (hopefully) delicious!

Can't forget the hot dogs.

Oh.....and Blake's favorite.....deviled eggs.

We're making a cake, too. Probably won't be quite as detailed as this one. Isn't it delightful?

The 4th is not the 4th without juicy watermelon.

And, glow necklaces!

Bubble gear will be re-stocked and ready to go.

And, of course......the fireworks.

Happy 4th to you! I'll be back to post as soon as time allows during Caroline's visit. Stay tuned!

Sounds like a blast. We're going to Kaboom Town in Addison tonight and then the Plano parade in the morning and fireworks AGAIN tomorrow night. I think each day should end with fireworks....people might be in a better mood!
