What Did You Do This 4th of July

What did you do to celebrate this 4th of July, or better known as Independence Day? My family celebrated by attending a small town parade that we so much enjoy each year called the China Grove parade, so named after the little community for where it is held each year on the 4th of July! It is a wonderful parade and most entertaining to say the least, people enter their riding lawnmowers, all terrain vehicles, boats, motorcycles, go carts, mules, golf carts, ride their horses, ride their horse drawn and mule drawn wagons, some people choose to just walk, veterans from our past wars enter, and walk the full length of the parade route, I might add. We then gathered back at our home for some hamburger and hotdog grilling by my husband while the grandchildren played and we attempted to stay somewhat cool, after all we are in the south! When he yelled ready, the kids were ready too, all of them gathered around the table for their turn at a hotdog and a hamburger cooked to perfection by Grandpa! After that they knew there would be something sweet that I had made from scratch. My only granddaughter who is 3, wanted a cupcake when she had finished eating so her Momma got her one and handed it to her. She quickly handed it back to her Momma and said, give me one without bones please! You see, I had bakes Red Velvet Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting with pecans finely chopped in the frosting. She took one bite and thought they had bones in them. We just cut the top off and she kept eating! There were fireworks later in the evening at the university here but we didn’t attend those this year, I wasn’t feeling up to it. All in all, we had a great day! Hope you did also!Rolling on the floor laughingDSCI0269
