Happy Independence Day!

It’s been a wet, rainy week in New Hampshire.  But on sunnier days, I’ve been snapping pictures of the fabulous 4th of July decorations in a neighboring town.  That town’s parade is very popular with politicians running for office, due to its lovely backdrop of flag bedecked colonial homes providing  a great photo opp.  So I thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you!  Enjoy!

Due to approaching Hurricane Arthur, outdoor dining on the deck was not possible today.  But I did manage to scamper out and gather some flowers before the rain started this morning.  If we couldn’t eat outside, at least we could look festive inside!

 Although I usually keep the vintage Bakelite silverware for picnic use, it dawned on me that it is the perfect silverware for the 4th of July too!

Got to love a man who will cheerfully grill in the pouring rain!

- 4th of July Menu - 
grilled burgers with all the fixings
old-fashioned potato salad

A very happy Independence Day from our family to yours!
