Cookouts, pool/beach/lake/river fun, fireworks, family, friends, sparklers....it's all just so AMERICAN. And I love America. You know that scene in the movie The Sandlot when they are playing baseball under the fireworks on the 4th of July? Ah, that's American! I love that movie. I always think about it on the 4th. Just in case you forgot, here's the clip from the movie: Sandlot.
I wish I had a picture to post of the Graham kids in their festive 4th of July attire back in the day. We definitely had some planned outfits. It's still a must, in my opinion, to wear the "team" colors on the 4th! Go Red, White and Blue!
This pic is from my latest obsession...Emersonmade. It's what I wish my outfit was for this July 4th. How much fun! (BTW - any of you generous folks looking to shower me with gifts? I would take ANYTHING from Emersonmade but they don't actually sell that vest. Haha. It's just a "prop"). Did I mention I'm obsessed? It's so nice to dream....since dreaming (not purchasing) is what you do when you are paying for lawyer school)
Unfortunately, It will just be the two of us celebrating our nation's b-day this year so I'm not going to make this (because then just the two of us will eat the whole thing!). BUT someone needs to make this 4th of July cake!
Happy Birthday, America and Happy Celebrating to all you fellow Americans!
