Well, our fourth of July celebration was rather subdued. It was kind of a crummy day weather-wise. We basically hung out around the house, and then grilled burgers and hot dogs for dinner. I know — edge-of-your-seat excitement, huh? I bought one of those Friendly’s Watermelon Rolls for dessert. Damn, those things are good. I can’t imagine living where they are unavailable. I mean, watermelon sherbet with chocolate chips, and then lemon sherbet for the “rind.” Seriously delicious. And I admit to being a sucker for food that looks like other foods (sherbet disguised as fruit — so sneaky!).
Since it was raining we didn’t do much in the way of fireworks, but we did manage to light off one “sparkler.” See, fireworks are illegal in NY, but you can purchase “faux” fireworks at some places, so we have these lo-fi sparklers that are in no way as good as the metal ones, but they do the job. And I bought some of those “champagne poppers” — the little bottles where you pull the string and it makes a BANG and streamers fly out. We’ll do the rest on a day when it’s not pouring.
After the boys were in bed we ordered “Epic Movie” on PayPerView, which was really funny, though I fell asleep on Drew while watching it because I was so freaking tired. We did tape it, though, so I will finish it another time.
So that was pretty much it! Hope yours was more exciting!
