Yes, to get dressed up in patriotic outfits and go down to see the parade is a must in this family.  Especially when you know there’s a delish brunch to be had at Nana’s afterwards.

Our 4th consisted of parade – brunch with the fam – watching the Patriot – and then hopping family barbecue’s – ending up at a friend’s place way out in the desert and shooting off all kinds of “pyrotechnics”  till late in the evening, until we were so covered in soot and ash that we just needed to get home to our shower.  Good times.

And i got to try a delish, and incredibly simple dessert =) Stuffed Strawberries =)
