Fun With Friends

 We were blessed to be with our dear friends on the 4th this year.  They invited us to their house for a cookout.  I made these little homemade Oreo cookies.  Let's just say...these are not figure friendly...but when you eat won't care.  :)

 They made yummy chicken and beef kabobs for the grill.  I am so proud of my eldest daughter for finally beginning to try new foods.  She ate one and liked it!  And it was not a chicken nugget.  Yippee!!
 Speaking of that girl....
 My sweet friend and daughter being goofy with the rackets.
 They had a wonderful toy in the backyard that my youngest has been begging for.  It was made from parachute material.  We are so going to get ones of these.  I can foresee lounging in the shade with a glass of iced tea and a magazine in my future in one  of these.
 They have pet bunnies and it was fun to play with them.
 It is tradition in my family to make homemade carmel corn and take it to the fireworks on the 4th of July to munch on while watching the show.  Last year was my first year of making it.  My youngest daughter told me I had to make it again this year.  She said, and I quote, "Mom it is tradition!"  I am glad she insisted I make it.  It was fun to share our family tradition with our new dear friends.

That looked like a great day. It is so great to spend time with people we care about on these kind of special days.

I am so thankful to live in a free country.

What fun to see how you celebrated the 4th. I've been tempted before to try homemade "oreos." Looks like y'all had a great time!
