Farewell, 4th of July 2015
The wonderful 4th of July is over until next year.
Everyone has gone home,
time to share some pictures.
Aren't you glad I finally learned how to make a collage
so you won't have to scroll through so many pictures?
Umbrellas stood by the front and back door
and were used plenty
but didn't stop our fun.
Thursday the schnauzers arrived--
oh yes, Christy and Bryan did too!
We all had Center Point barbecue for lunch.
And we celebrated a belated birthday for Christy
that night with Chicken Divan and lots of good talk.
From here on the photos aren't in chronological order,
but Gurn came to spend the 4th with his little sister--Christy,
and my sister Teresa and brother-in-law Fred joined us.
We had so much good food, most of which we forgot to take pictures of,
but Christy and R.H. grilled out chicken and steaks and ribs.
Teresa brought her delicious potato salad and Christy fixed asparagus,
and I fixed salmon in the oven and changed my cobbler from blackberry
to blueberry at the request of my New Englander son-in-law.
Bryan, thank you! Who knew that blueberry cobbler was so good!
Here's one picture I did get of a dish--
Christy's heirloom tomato, fresh mozzarella and basil salad
with a vinaigrette from aged balsamic.
It was amazing and a work of art!
Here's one last picture of the 4th of July 2015
at Valley View.
I hope yours was wonderful too!
