Family’s First 4th!

Put another “1st” in the books for this family.  Our 1st 4th of July.  We began the day at our cousin’s house for their annual 4th of July party.  There was yummy food (as always), drinks, lots of kids playing in sprinklers, watermelon, red, white & blue, and of course… beer pong!

I brought my delicious Creamy Nilla Berry Trifle (I posted the recipe HERE)…it was a hit.

We ended the day at my parents’ house for their annual family dinner and firework show.  My parents made their delicious ribs, that just fall right off the bone, corn on the cob, homemade potato salad, and I made my homemade spinach & artichoke dip (recipe coming soon).

The nearby high school puts on a fireworks show each year and you can see them from our backyard.  I debated whether or not to let Mia enjoy the show along with us, but when they started setting off a few test pops, I realized they were WAY too loud for her little ears.  She slept in the house through them.  Maybe next year she’ll get to watch.  We hope all of you enjoyed your 4th!

P.s.  Vote! Purdy please :)
