We had a wonderful 4th of July, despite the fact that it rained ALL WEEKEND LONG!! We made the best of it and thankfully, the rain stopped long enough for us to enjoy the evenings. Sunday we spent the evening with friends at the Stanfields house. We had lots of yummy food, fireworks and time spent with friends. It was a lot of fun.
Then Monday, we went to another friends' house for their second annual 4th of July party! They live right down the street from where their city does their fireworks display, so it's just a quick walk and you're there. We went last year and had so much fun and had just as much fun again this year. The rain stopped just in time for the party and stayed dry the rest of the night with just a few sprinkles during the fireworks. Both kids loved the fireworks again this year!
For the 4th of July party, our friends supplied the meat and soda and we each brought a side or dessert. My mom found this super cute and yummy recipe on facebook. It's a taco dip. The bottom layer was re-fried beans, then a layer of salsa, followed by a layer of shredded cheese and then the top layer was sour cream. Then for the flag you use black olives, cherry tomatoes and then Tostito Rolls. It was super easy and a crowd-pleaser for sure. :-)
We finally got our flag pole hung, just in time to hang our new flag for the 4th of July!
And since the rest of this post has been about the 4th of July, I'll share these super cute pictures I took of my nephews for the 4th.
I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July!
