Our 4th

Here is how we celebrated America's birthday at the Butterfly house.

(Our $4 find from a garage sale. America painted on canvas. It is now hanging in the hallway. Purchased on a Friday garage sale on July 3rd. The whole family went out to shop. Because that is what we do for fun.)

Back to July 4th, we decorated.
We put on our flag shirts. Even Lukey's kitties needed something to wear.

Then Lukey helped me make a flag cake. This was so easy and so good. I made a white cake from a mix, covered it with cool whip and then added blueberries and strawberries.

We stayed home all day, Aaron grilled, we swam in the pool, and then we watched NASCAR Saturday night. Because what is more American than NASCAR? And that my friends was our 4th.
