We were invited to a backyard pool party and cookout yesterday. My friend, who hosted the gathering, has a perfect spot for viewing the local 4th of July (on the 3rd of July) parade. Everyone brought something. I made cake.
And my kids made the little flags that are stuck in it. They were printed from Martha Stewarts web page, cut out, and glued to toothpicks.
Everyone wore red, white, and blue.
You can’t see Oli’s bright blue crocs. And neither can I anymore since they were lost at the parade. How? I do not know. All I know is that after the parade, he had a little stash of candy but no shoes on his feet. Maybe when someone threw him candy, he threw his shoes in return? I guess we could say his toes were liberated for the fourth!
