Happy Independence day!

Well, better late than never! 
Remember, I told you I was going to re-live summer, one blog post at a time...

What would Independence Day be without some red, white, and blue treats:

Yummi Strawberries, dipped in white chocolate and blue sugarsprinkles...

And another patriotic treat:

Lady Liberty's torch!

Yeah, I had to get a little artistic with the picture. It is really just a boxed cake mix baked in ice-cream cups, with yellowish frosting and sugar-wafers as the flames...

We actually had a great extended weekend, even though Natalie spent a lot of the time like this:

On the couch, watching a Barbie movie...

She came down with a fever on the first day of the extended weekend (thankfully nothing all that serious), so we kept things pretty low-key. But  cuddle-time is always good, and fortunately she didn't know that she was missing out on our plans to go see the fireworks.

She did spend some time out of the bed / sofa, though:

And if nothing else, she could still lay down and cuddle up by the firepit, enjoying the fire, while we waited for it to get dark enough for our own fireworks:
Is it time for fireworks yet?

And we did have a lot of fun with some fireworks at home, which of course required the proper safety gear:
Ready for fireworks!

So, Happy Independence Day! Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
