Because last year we were in the UK walking all over Belfast, trying to find any semblance of home to help us celebrate. We finally did find a wee watermelon!
So this year was even more special because we did have hotdogs, (natural, nitrate free ones) and fireworks, and big, huge watermelons galore!And because I wanted to partake fully in the festivities...I didn't drag out my camera and take photos, sorry. :-P
We had a wonderful, relaxing, fun, and yummy holiday!
I always try to make a patriotic dessert, and this year I think I surpassed them all! I always use fruit, but in the past it would be a cake or a pie with fruit on the top to look like a flag. Well, this year I did not want to turn on the oven since we're in the middle of a MN "heat wave" and we don't have an AC....so I decided to make Flag Smoothies and Popsicles. Refreshing! The kids LOVED them! And of those I did take photos, because they are so awesome!
Aren't they cute? (Recipe and Photo How To coming soon!)
We also ran over to the in-laws so all the cousins could play together for a bit!
Happy 4th of July!!!!!
