Jolly July

On the farm, we've heard lots of fireworks from afar, but we haven't seen them.  Bedtime occurs BEFORE darkness settles this time of year.  However, we've had no problem celebrating our country's independence with toddler friendly fireworks (aka, SPRINKLERS and patriotic clothing from Llama, Grandma O.).

The girls and I also got to attend the traditional Jolly July 3rd picnic at our friends Ty and Amanda's house.  They throw the BEST gatherings full of gourmet foods, interesting people, laid back vibes and Hazel admirers.  I made these delightful treats.  Talk about EASY and deceptively impressive :)
