America's Birthday

Water guns in the warm sun.
Mowing the oset.
Buying fireworks.
Grilling meat and veggies (steak and hot dog not pictured)
Homemade Pinata. By Hejjo. With his own candy. 
It was a huge hit.
...the show.

It was a very American 4th of July. Except everyone was speaking Polish. We were supposed to have a small family party and then Hejjo told me halfway through grocery shopping that he had invited his neighborhood friends. It turned out to be quite a party and there was plenty to go around. I was proud of Hejjo's pinata. He even used his own candy that he had been saving. The fireworks were a result of a husband who never gives up and an accommodating proprietor. The food was delicious. I got to eat potato chips! A twice a year occurrence and well worth the wait. The beer was cold and the company was kind. It was a fine evening. 

Happy Birthday, America!
We're thinking of you.


  1. Yay! Your 4th sounds awesome. I made pasta and bolognese sauce. Celebrating the immigrant nation we are...

  2. Those burgers look good! And some perfect weather to go along with it. Happy 4th!
