The Glorious Fourth



We were dazzled with a beautiful sunny morning on the Fourth of July 


But it quickly went downhill from there, and repeated a pattern that has been ongoing for quite a few days here in beautiful coastal Florida. 



Dinner plans were not altered however, as we had decided earlier to picnic at a favorite restaurant,
Pit Boss in Port Richey, Florida


 My sisters and I

And  Mom with her sons in law!
No, she's not tugging their ears to draw them close!  

What a fun evening!  Janet prepared a game, questions about the flag that became hilarious as we discovered we didn't know as much as we thought about Old Glory.  Each of us sang or recited The Star Spangled Banner to prove we knew the words. Mom won Janet's contest and her prize was monster piece of good old American peanut butter pie!  We all shared, but after the wonderful dinner of barbecue pork, ribs, potato salad, french fries etc, etc, etc a bite or two apiece was all we could handle.

Later, at home our neighbors put on a fabulous show, lots of noise, color and better fireworks than I saw when we went to the public display.  They sell them every year and all the leftovers go up July 4th.  My front porch has a perfect view.  

Hope you all had as much fun as we did!

We've been having lots of rain here in Charleston, SC also. The garden has loved it though and it only sprinkled a couple of times on the 4th. You have a lovely family!
Rain, rain go away! I want to play!

It's been raining steady on the Gulf Coast too. I'm ready for some of that summer sunshine.

Rain, schmain. Sounds like you had a great 4th. Wish you could send some of that rain to Austin, however.
Have a great week!
:-)
