This Is The Fourth of July
We had a pile of people come over on the Fourth of July. We had a spread of American food. BBQ, potato salad, baked beans, pasta salads, an American flag cake, guacamole, watermelon, blueberry cobbler, pickles, beer, sweet tea. Red, white, and blue jello.
We were in bathing suits and shooting off fireworks. Children squealed and ran around with sparklers, stood in awe and fear of the noises and asked for more. They stayed up late. People talked and ate and drank and sat.
This old house held us all in the rain and then released us back to play and shoot fireworks.
We celebrated barefoot. We watched children toddling and new friends making. This is the Fourth of July.
