We got July 4th sooner here than in the states. I (Anna) really missed being away from all of the red white & blue decorations and going on a family picnic then watching fireworks. Being overseas really drives home how you miss those family traditions. But, we celebrated none-the-less.
We're also so grateful for the freedom in America. You notice the difference when you're in a country that's not free.
We dressed in red, white, & blue!
Our little firecracker keeps our lives sparkling!
Strawberry Shortbread helped chase away the blues of missing home and all things July 4th ;)
Since it was raining, we had a picnic in our living room. I splurged and bought beef to make hamburgers, and we listened to patriotic music as we ate, courtesy of YouTube. :)
