My parents and husband watched the fawn triplets who spent the day in the side yard. They have spent a good deal of time the past week or two nibbling grass and flowers, and napping beneath the trees around the house.
These have been the perfect cups to use over the years for lemonade and iced tea. Even if I don’t set them out, guests find them in the cabinet. We indulged in the traditional feast for the 4th: hamburgers and hotdogs, mac and cheese, garden salad, pasta salad, cole slaw, corn-on-cob, baked beans, watermelon, blueberries, and strawberries.
… in the magical surrounding of the tiny white lights strung around the back yard. It was another good Independence Day celebration with family and neighbors, an opportunity to remember the Founding Fathers and our military, past and present, as we took time to commemorate our country’s beginning (see Staunton and Virginia helped create American independence). Happy 4th of July!
