We usually have a very low key fourth! This year I invited Britt, Jay and the kids over for a cookout and as usual I cooked way too much for everyone! We had burgers, hot dogs, sweet italian sausage, and thick steaks, potato salad and corn on the cob. The weather was beautiful. It was a nice change after all the rain and cool weather we've had.
Later in the evening, after Britt and family went home, we opened our IBC diet root beer and watched the Boston Pops on TV. I know, a rowdy family we are LOL! I love watching the pops. My favorite part is the patriotic sing along! It reminds of me of school. Every day after the Pledge of Allegiance we sing a patriotic song. I also teach my class the sign language for them. I love hearing the families tell me that their child tries to teach them. I often wonder if any of them through the years watch the Pops and think about learning those songs in kindergarten.
While the show was on Tim drew a quick little flag that he designed. He said it had one star in the middle and 49 stars around it. That way wherever you lived you could think that the big star was for your state since everyone loves thier own state!
I hope you all enjoyed the time with your family and friends. I know we did!
