Our 4th this year was low key - full of wonderful company, great food and live entertainment provided by Addie.
My mom cooked for roughly 30 people, there were 9 of us... We were full. Some food highlights included homegrown tomatoes from my sister's garden and a spicy roasted corn, shrimp and avocado ceviche type concoction that I whipped up. Oh yeah, and my Mom's blueberry cobbler, I could slap someone just thinking about it.
Addie and Jake made candy necklaces for all of us ladies. So thoughtful, they are.
After all of the stickiness involved in our festivities a bath was a must for Addie. I've totally embraced my role as the creepy aunt behind the camera, btw.
When Jake and I got home there was quite the fireworks display viewable from our backyard. I set the tripod up and experimented with "writing" with sparklers.
A perfectly relaxed and stress free day in honor of lady liberty :)
