Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July!!
I hope that you have had a wonderful day ~ hopefully off of work ~ celebrating our great country where we have so many freedoms.

I didn't do very much, but it was great sleeping in and hanging at home for the first part of the day.
Then I made my world famous flag cake. Ok maybe it isn't world famous but it is easy and yummy.

Buzz and I went to my parents for a bar-b-q. It was just my parents, my brother in law and the two of us. It is so weird to have the family shrinking. All of the kids had other places to be. So we ate and socialized and enjoyed our adult time together.

We can still do fireworks at my parents house. They live on a street where everyone sits out on the curb and shoots off their fireworks. It is a very festive time, and it is sort of our tradition to spend the 4th at mom and dad's. But this year we didn't even stay for the fun. Dad has recently had surgery and we didn't feel it would be good for him to be exposed to all of the smoke.

And our dog ~ the poor 90 pounds of love ~ is so scared of all of the noise. Her tail has been between her legs for two days. We got home and she ran right up to my room and has been hanging out here with me since then. I actually came upstairs to watch T.V. just so I could comfort her. We can hear all of the fireworks, can see the ones from Angels stadium, but are choosing to be quiet in our own little world tonight. I know - boring right?! But, I sort of like it.

Hope you have had exactly the type of day that makes you happy!
