What we did on the Fourth

Well, we ate on the Fourth of July.  Some of our menu was wholesome; a beautiful barbecued pork loin and lots of vegetables and fruit.  But we saved room for S'mores.  We ate some made with graham crackers and some made with chocolate chip cookies.  When I looked around, almost everyone had melted marshmallow on their face and John's sister had some in her hair.  We decided to try roasted Slim Jim sausages.  They were tasty;  a lot better roasted than right out of the package. 

John still has lots of construction materials left over from his bridge building days so our fire pit is made out of a wheel from a semi-truck and the marshmallow sticks are made out of snap ties.  Everything is very sturdy.

And, last of all, notice the red, white and blue vehicles in the background!  Well, almost red, white and blue.

Update 7/30  I "found" this movie on my camera; I did not know it was there.  It made Kate, John and me laugh pretty hard...it isn't edited because I don't know how to do that either! 
Hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July; we had cool weather in Red Lodge, not 90s or 100s like many parts of the U.S.  And there was fresh snow on the mountains this morning.

Today Kate and I are helping John pack before he drives to Knoxville to teach at the AQS Show.  If you haven't signed up for one of his classes, this is your chance!  http://www.aqsquilt.com/
