Happy birthday, America!

What better way to celebrate the 4th of July than fireworks, grilling out and cherry pie!

Although Lauris and I didn't make it to Atbalsis, the nearby resort that was hosting a gigantic fireworks display, on Saturday night we ended up with a personal show visible from the living room sofa. There were at least five spots around Long Lake that were firing off pretty big rockets and although I went down to the pier for a bit, there were less mosquitoes on the couch.

Today Alnis grilled up a pork tenderloin and we all sat down to a big lunch. Afterwards a unanimous decision was made to postpone the cherry pie for an hour...

Notice the napkins?
Did I mention the cherry pie had a stars and stripes top? And was red (cherries), white (whip cream) and blue (blueberries)?

I wish everyone a red, white and blue fourth!
