Happy Fourth of July!! We didn't make it to the fireworks show because it was past Barrett's bedtime, and we didn't do sparklers at home because Sassy is still scarred from the last time (literally....who knew sparklers could explode and accidentally light your dog on fire from five feet away???), but we fit in plenty of other patriotic festivities to celebrate the Fourth. On Saturday, we had ribs with Kristopher's family, and on Sunday we relaxed at home and enjoyed strawberry shortcake.
Please don't judge the accuracy of my blueberry stars and strawberry stripes...I was just going for an overall effect.
This was always a favorite holiday because every year my parents took us to the Fourth of July celebration with face painting and swimming races topped off by sitting on the golf course watching the best fireworks in town. I want to create those memories for Barrett too.
So, next year: fireworks! But don't worry Sass, no sparklers in your presence ever again. Promise.
