Happy Fourth of July!

Drink time under the clear blue sky.
Mmm burgers and dogs on the grill.
At our house, we spent the day with the windows wide open as a breeze comes through since it was a beautiful out. I also spent it finishing up the cleaning that didn't get done earlier this week, doing yard sale prep and giving myself a manicure and pedicure. M2 is got a pedicure to match Mama's with her Piggy Paint.
She's quite excited to have ocean blue toe nails.

This evening was our cookout with burgers and hotdogs on the new grill. While the meat was heating up, an unknown dog came running into the yard. She was very sweet and friendly. Since she had tags, I was able to figure out where she'd come from. We were about to eat so were going to take her back after, but she was crying and seemed upset (she was trying to get in to get to the cats). M2 was very upset by this so A took her back home on our cat leash. It turns out she's deaf. It's good we found her since she wouldn't have heard someone calling or a car coming down the street.

M2 eating corn with ketchup on her nose.
Our outdoor dinner on the deck included macaroni salad, baked beans, corn on the cob and lemonade. A trip to see the fireworks didn't happen since M2 was getting tired and wild. It doesn't matter that we didn't go. It turns out there were fireworks almost in our backyard. M2 LOVED it, pointing and going, "dat! ohhh!" I think next year she'll want to see even more. Now, for the yummy pie.
One of our kitties and me.
