Anyway before I go sleep to the sound of "rockets bursting in air" (since I'm writing this blog post on July 4th), here are some pics from our Fourth of July celebrations.
Before we started watching Downton, we did some decorating. The Sis got out the flag and her Common Sense shirt (a Penguin Civic Classics shirt!), and I got out my President PEZ dispensers and Penguin Civic Classics copies of The Declaration of Independence and The Federalist Papers.
|Yes, I would have Presidents PEZ dispensers. Those are the first 5 presidents.|
We also laughed (and I cried a little on the inside) at the number of people who thought yesterday was America's 2013th birthday. Um, NO.
Alz made bead bracelets for my little cousins-once-removed - as modeled by fat!unicorn.
After swimming, Loki had the classic American meal of burger and beer (all dog-versions, of course).

Then we set off fireworks. Loki and Sadie distracted each other from the fireworks by chasing each other around the backyard.

my patriotic nails I painted while watching Downton Abbey.
