Happy Fourth of July, everyone! Started my day at the baseball field with my dad and brother. Which totally reminded me that I should have kept playing softball. I forgot how much I really do love hitting a ball around the field and playing catch. Just to be clear, today my brother was the one batting, I spent the morning jogging around the outfield trying to snag the baseballs coming at me. Good Old American Baseball, can’t have the fourth without it, right?
But we did get spoiled at lunch time when I got to visit my Aunt Maryann. Oh, and did she ever surprise us with fantastic red velvet cake (to die for and all decked out in red, white, and blue sprinkles) and pulled pork and ribs to which I heard she got up at 4 a.m. this morning to work on. Did I tell you that she’s the best cook? I just hope my meals come out to be half as good as hers. Maybe she’ll let me make a cookbook with her some day. I’d probably game about 20 pounds in the process from eating everything, but it would be so worth it!
Anyway, last night we set off fireworks, so instead of hanging around the park with a ton of families, I’m going to a concert! Styx and Foreigner, here I come! I’m already preparing my oh-so-sentive ears for this. (I’m the person that has my TV down at volume 14 and still says it sounds loud at night. Crazy, I know.)
So, I hope you all got in some BBQ, tons of sweets, and fireworks! Share with me your meals! Anyone else have any red, white, and blue treats?
