4th of July

 The highlight of our holiday was a surprise visit from these awesome people:

Dave (my brother), Brooklyn, and their kids Cambria (9), Maya (8), and Xochi (5)

My brother and his family came through town on their way home from a family reunion in Sedona, Arizona. It was awesome to spend the evening with them!

We had dinner together, the usual summer-type feast: hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled corn on the cob, watermelon, chips, and fruit kabobs for dessert. I tried out a red, white, and blue layered drink and it worked! Cranberry apple juice, white Gatorade, and no-sugar blue Gatorade. (They liquid settles depending on sugar content.) It looked basically like this:
After dinner we went to the cul-de-sac to do the fireworks we'd bought. It was a really nice night, hot but not miserable. The highlight was when our neighbors did some awesome illegal airborne fireworks--we had a great show right over our heads.

The cape was the perfect touch on her patriotic outfit, don't you think?

Right over head, I tell ya!

Loved this time celebrating our nation's birth with some of my favorite people. It was a short visit but so worth it to us Joneses.
