Happy Fourth of July!


I am spending the day celebrating our countries freedom with my family & friends! We have relaxed and enjoyed the simple pleasures of the day! You will see why in the pics below!


Our decorative straws for the Fourth

I just love these fireworks!
  We went to our local fireworks display and then came back to have some down right delicious dessert!
 I am loving this chocolate cake with strawberries along with a cup of coffee!

  I made our second annual batch of Freedom Punch for the kids to enjoy. You can make yours here.

Getting ready for the Freedom Punch

We can not end our day till my baby girl gets to light up the sparklers. This is her favorite thing to do! I think it is because this is the only time we let her play with fire! Plus it just sparkles!

You can look at some of my previous posts that I have included for you. You can see my Fourth of July Vignette here.
I also did a show & tell of my past celebrations of the fourth here. 
I hope that you have had a wonderful day celebrating our country's birthday.

I am leaving you with one of my favorite songs lyrics!  
We live in a country, the greatest on earth. Our flag stands for freedom, and what it is worth. She stands in the harbor, Miss Liberty calls. All have gave some, but some gave all. For me to be blessed!
