4th of July, 2014.

July 7, 2014

Our 4th of July celebration was a total last minute, thrown together kind of event, but those can be the best kind sometimes. We had some family coming into town and since Peter didn't have to fly off to Alaska for spur of the moment project with work (thank you Jesus!) we decided to have a cookout at the house.  Just the normal - burgers, a big salad, some potatoes, grilled corn, and a lot of fresh fruit! A perfect 4th of July party, if you ask me! It was so nice to have some family and friends around to enjoy the holiday! 

It was Jaden's first time meeting the chickens. 
It took a little bit but he finally warmed up to them.

The food was so good and fresh since some of it was from the garden. 
The bruschetta I made below was made with all fresh red and yellow tomatoes from the yard.
my new favorite side for any cookout!
Grilled corn mixed with a tablespoon of butter, sprinkle salt and paprika and fresh cilantro.

Yummy food, friends & family made for a wonderful night!
I'm just mad that I forgot to buy the sparklers...
