It’s Independence Day or if you live in the UK, I suppose it’s Treason Day! The steaks were grilled earlier and everyone had their fill, so now it’s time we Colonials celebrate with some backyard fireworks, compliments of my SIL, Emilio (a.k.a. “The Tough Guy”…so named by Adam).

The summer is in full-swing…

We have family from out-of-town, and a couple from WAY out-of-town (like across the Atlantic), as my brother- and sister-in-law are here from the UK. Of course, our “Independence Day” is to them more likely “We Lost America Day”

Here’s a portion of the party-goers demonstrating their patriotism with little American flags and funny glasses…

Happy Fourth of July

Home for the Fourth of July: Cindy made some very patriotic looking strawberries, and the boys are anxious to get the grill going and jump in the pool…well, jump in the pool…

We took a trip to Peddler’s Village for the Fourth of July Weekend festivities. There were a lot of little craft stands, face painting and caricature artists, and food vendors interspersed among the quaint little shops in the village. The day was beautiful, the sky was blue and sun was shinning, but it wasn’t unreasonably hot.

The boys had a great time, and had the opportunity to savor an American tradition: The Independence Day hot dog! (Where’s Daddy’s hot dog? Maybe that has something to do with him looking so grumpy…)

And the boys pose for a picture with their Mommy (well, pose, sorta…like I’ve said numerous times: Getting them together on something is like herding cats :-)).
