I hope you all had a great Fourth of July enjoying the freedoms that our great service men and women have blessed us with. We did, though, in a sweaty fashion. David and I worked in the yard all afternoon trimming bushes, pulling weeds, and clearing supposed pathways on either side of the house. What we lack in grass around these parts, we make up for in weeds and random trees popping up here and there. Nope, no parades, fireworks, or weenie roasts for us today (but we did reward ourselves to dinner at Texas Roadhouse this evening for our efforts). Kristi was the most patriotic today...whipping up a batch of red, white, and blue cupcakes for a celebration with her friends tonight. David and I squeezed in a little taste test with our evening coffee. They were festive and delicious. As my dad would say "Of course, they were good. There was sugar in them, wasn't there?!". Happy "4th", everyone.
It's a Grand Old Flag
