missin' the Mother Land.....

Happy 4th of July, y'all back's been hard to be away from home today...just thinking of good times, thankful for our freedom, independence, advancement...missing the trimmings of the day - patriotic gatherings, parades, good barbecue and lots of food, being out with friends, fireworks...can you believe they don't celebrate it here?! LOL We had a pretty American meal, I thought - barbecue pork sandwiches (homemade BBQ sauce and buns), potato salad and corn - and shared it with some of our friends, just for fun. We have to try new things all the time, so we like turning the tables on them once in a while. :) We'll celebrate their independence day next month with all kinds of games and food and most likely listening to all-night karaoke. Fun stuff! Happy Birthday USA!

  1. I hope you had a wonderful day anyway. That has to be hard. At least you are keeping the traditions alive for you children to learn as well.
