Happy 4th of July!
Yesterday was America's birthday! Our country turned 256 years old. When I think of the 4th of July, I think of gorgeous firework displays, delicious food, and red, white, and blue. And that's exactly what yesterday was! My family and I attended a friend's party at their home in Gig Harbour, WA. They had lots of decorations everywhere, a DJ, a bouncy house, and tons of food. My friend had some pretty and very patriotic cakes which I couldn't resist taking some photos of. Sadly, we left before they cut into them.
My favorite part of the party, besides seeing some friends we hadn't seen in a while, were the Jell-O Shots! These weren't your average Jell-O Shots; these were in plastic syringes and really fun to consume! My friend made them, and they had four different flavors to choose from. They tasted pretty strong, but really cold and tasty, too!
There were a lot of desserts, but we tried a red, white, and blue sugar cookie. I took a really patriotic shot of one with some decorations in the background. Then we drove back to Seattle and watched the fireworks from our living room. Our view looks out to West Seattle and South Seattle. The fireworks kept going until around 1 am. I hope you had a fun and festive 4th of July!
