Tomorrow is the 4th of July. I'm going to be busy as we're having several people over for a pool partry and a cookout (huge pork ribs - yum!). I've got to make potato salad, pasta salad, and baked beans. Lonnie is grilling the ribs. My sister-in-law is bringing peach cobbler (we have Blue Bell Vanilla ice cream!), rolls, and chips and dip. At last count there will be 8 people. Should be fun!
In years past we've spent a lot of 4ths at the lake. They do a really amazing fireworks show and it's always been a blast. Though last year, it was too damn hot, so we stayed home but didn't do anything special to mark the occasion.
Not so this year!
Here's Mitchell, my Mini-Schnauzer, enjoying a boat ride at the lake.
Other years we've gone to Colorado and spent the holiday with my Dad. Now that he's moved here, we no longer have that option. I will miss going to Boulder, even though I only went up there every other year. It's a beautiful city and I love the vibe there.
But this year, we're staying home, here in hot, sizzling Texas. Perfect for a pool party, right?
Anyway, in case I don't make it to the computer to post tomorrow, Happy Birthday, USA!
