What a great 4th of July weekend!
I worked Saturday so Josh took the kids on a 12 mile bike ride – sad to have missed out on that but the kids really enjoyed it!
That night we went camping in our back yard. See blog here.
Sunday we went to check out the 150 year sesquicentennial celebration in Manchester. They had a talent show, food, craft venders, face painting (which the kids didn’t want to partake in) and a chalk walk. We added some pics to the chalk walk as we were leaving and headed home for nap time. Some of our cousins and my sistercame over to enjoy some time in our pool. We enjoyed supper Wolfeys which is always delicious and ended the night playing a game of celebrity at our house.
Monday went by so quick. Josh did some yard work and cleaned up the tent / camping mess while I made some pies for a 4th of July party. My aunt makes this Ameican Flag pie every year and I love a good pie so I thought I would try it out.
I told Alice you aren’t baking unless you have some flour in your face – as I was getting her with flour hands. Later in she was concerned my flour had fallen off and she got me with both hands full of flour ❤️
The pie was almost homemade- as I had never made strawberry pie before and heard it can be difficult we got some filling from the store and added some fresh strawberries to it, new goal to figure out a good strawberry pie filling recipie. Then I made my famous blueberry pie filling – from scratch. And made my dough as well – I use my mom’s ” Never fail pie crust” recipie. It is amazing and never fails! The pie was delicious and turned out great!
Over all great weekend! On to a three day work wee before a fun family wedding weekend in Milwaukee!
What did you do this weekend?
