I don’t know where you live, but the thermometer on our patio testified that it was a “HOT” Fourth of July down here.

Oh, I just love fresh corn roasted on the grill!

And my husband is “King of the Grill”!  He cooked up some of the most delicious steaks, sausage, and ribs.  The son if a chef, and he can he ever cook!  Thanks sweetie, I’m still stuffed.

Now inside, the temperature was just right, and my grandson’s smile made my day!

And I even got my sweet Kayla to put on this Stature of Liberty hat.   I “pinky” promised this would NOT go on FB, but she didn’t say anything about my blog.  Her reward was the picture below!

In the afternoon, we went down to the river to watch the reenactment of a WWII bombing raid over the USS Kid war museum.

It was so neat watching the vintage planes zooming in as guns were firing and bombs exploded in the river around the ship!
