How about a little fun for the 4th? I worked this evening on putting these photos into a slide show with music to give you a peek at summer around here. Then I decided it would be easier to throw all the photos on here and faster for you to scroll through. So here’s what I want you to do for your ultimate enjoyment. I didn’t want patriotic music with these. (You can get all you want of that on the radio today.) I wanted something upbeat that sounded like summertime. Just click here and either skip the ad or let it play through. Leave Youtube playing while you come back here to scroll through the photos. Got all that? Hope you enjoy these random scenes of summer…
A stack of books in the bedroom
Strawberries with pound cake and real whipped cream…yum.
My bike with its basket full of geraniums
An old house (that I love!) downtown
Making the Barefoot Contessa red velvet cupcakes
Daughter with Cooper in his spiffy new patriotic collar
Making home-made ice cream
It turned out a little soupy, but…
it was still good on this.
The back porch swing
Our downtown shopping area
Another random view of the basket on my bike (a couple of weeks later.)
Daughter’s bed with some summer throw pillows. I made that front one from an old Gap t-shirt she had when she was 3. Wonder if I could get Cooper to pose like that so I could take his picture?
Another old home downtown decorated for the 4th of July
Grilled hotdogs for dinner (I like mine charred almost black.)
Drumstick ice cream for dessert. I love Drumsticks – especially that last bite full of the chocolate in the cone! (Why are there so many food photos in this?)
Watermelon…more food..looks like all we do is eat around here!
Sparklers – we ran out of matches, so she had to start lighting them on the grill…probably not the safest thing in the world to do, right?
Flag at the front porch
And finally, if you want to hear a different version of a song that is typically played on this day, go here. (Let John Mayer finish his song first though.) Tim Hawkins is so funny he makes me laugh out loud! I think you will enjoy him too.
Hope you are having a happy 4th of July!
