The forth of July is a time to reflect on the sacrifices that have been made for our freedom and to celebrate America’s Declaration of Independence.
It’s usually celebrated with great food…
that’s prepared with a tender hand and a loving heart.
It”s a time when families come together…
and gather around the table for great conversation.
With some of our family out of town we decided to celebrate my mums birthday, usually on the 3rd, on the 4th too.
Happy Birthday Mum! I love you!
Meggers helped grandma blow out the her candles.
After cake, tea and scones with fresh cream, blueberries and strawberries the boys beat each other up on the PS3.
and we went outside to watch the fireworks. I couldn’t seem to get the timing right, seriously this is the best shot. Yep, I totally tried to jazz it up with a red border. You think this is pitiful? You should see the worst one. ~grin~
Despite my poor photograph, my mum and my family had a great evening and that to me is priceless.
