Fourth of July!

We had a GREAT Fourth of July!  We had a few friends a lot of family and a ton of good, hot Florida fun in the sun.  Of course, we had lot's of FOOD and DRINK.  Here's a few highlights:

My sister-in-law Crafty Florida Cowgirl made a colorful firecracker cake and Lauren McKinsey made cute pie pops and I made S'more bars and a fruity poundcake trifle. I experimented with some lemonade recipes and came up with this:

This drink would be good for any summer party or barbecue. Give it a try!

We spent a lot of time cooking, eating, talking, laughing and then of course we did a lot of this:

Just letting go and jumping in!  What did you do at your Great Gathering?
