I did get some sewing done, amazingly, between beach time, cookouts, and visiting with the family.
Here is my 4th of July Weekend recap:
|Fresh clams on the grill, yum.|
My step-mother has a knack for making simple look excellent without even trying.
She's got quite the collection of vintage, before it was the style. Hence this little mason jar caddy.
|Boiled Shrimp, another coastal cookout must-have|
|Yummy summer pasta salad, mayo-free|
|Fresh Bruschetta... and a Hurricane? Yes. (That's the red drink you see.)|
|Fresh Bruschetta on grilled bread, that is.|
|Patriotic Bunting on my Dad's Beach-Cottage porch.|
|Miss Liberty, Trista. :-)|
Morehead City has a great fireworks display and we are lucky that my Dad's home is close enough to the waterfront that we can enjoy the show from the comfort of the front porch... so while we wait for the big show to start... we have fun with sparklers.
This is our VIP seating for the show. *grin*
Like I said, fun-filled weekend. Some things I didn't take pictures of:
~ My Neice's 12th Birthday party at the baseball game.
~ Trista coming in one push-up short in the push-up contest at the bottom of the 3rd inning (against a boy who was a year older than her... she did 23 push-ups in 30 seconds!!)
~ The beach... I'm not brave enough to bring my nice camera around the sand and salt water, yet.
~ All of the hamburgers and hot dogs we ate... which was a lot... though we did mix it up with salmon on the grill, and BBQ chicken... yum.
A big "Hello!", *wave*, and Welcome to the new readers who have followed over the three day weekend... I'm happy to have you!
