Isnt this star awesome? I got it from my dear friend Kelly on flickr. I sent her one of the firecracker dogs and she sent this. I love it! I love swapping every holiday with her! such fun!!
I'm looking forward to this weekend! starting out doing stuff around the house. but hoping to run down to the lake for an hour or so a little later. I have to get a few grocerys to make all of the 4th of July goodies.. Strawberry Jello pretzel dessert, brocoli salad, pasta salad, maybe a fruit tart, meat, rolls, etc... oh.. and a trip to the liqour store for some pina colodas or mudslides or both! (we arent really big drinkers, but we like to sip on fun drinks for the 4th!),
Looks like the weather is going to be perfect for the 4th and really for most of this weekend. some late afternoon rain today and morning rain tomorrow. We'll be heading out to my aunts cottage for the day tomorrow, and then Monday we always spend the day with our bestest friends and their families.
Our town celebrates the 4th of july with a big parade.. (lots of noisy firetrucks!) then theres lots of stuff going on all day long, concerts and shows, chicken bbq, a craft show, vintage car show and tractor pulls, all followed by a huge fireworks display. we bring in thousands of people for the day and mostly the night. always a lot of fun. we start out at the parade, walk through the craft show then go home pack up all the goodies, swimsuits and towels and head down the road to our friends who have the most gorgeous home and property and we spend the rest of the day there until the fireworks. we float around in the pool sipping those sweet frozen drinks and we pig out! (ok.. well, thats what I do! ) lol! I wonder if Torry pie will mind all the noise of the firetrucks and fireworks. I hope it doesnt scare him. fingers crossed. I imagine it will though.
I hope everyone has a blast this weekend!
see yas later!
