America the Beautiful

Fireworks on the Fourth of JulyImage via Wikipedia
For years, we always had a 4th of July party!
We had a pool and the family came in droves!!

Aside from the yummy cookout, I always made a flag cake-
I'm sure you've seen it-
Strawberries, blueberries and cool whip
 are the three basic ingredients to make this cake sparkle!!

The thing I enjoyed most was decorating for it-
The Christmas Tree Shop always cooperated
 with festive decorations at a fraction of the cost -

Flags hung on fences, wooden flags, red white and blue pots and candles-
my kids favorite part were the sparklers!
it rocked!!

So, in honor of the 4th of July-
Enjoy!!
Gotta fly-Claire
