Friday Favorites- Fourth of July Edition

Friday, July 5, 2013
Happy Friday and happy Independence Day!  Today is the intermission for our multi-day celebration. :). While we rest up, I'm excited to share a few of the favorite things from yesterday's festivities!  

We spent the afternoon at historic Old Sturbridge Village for a Naturalization Ceremony- my father-in-law became a US citizen!  The whole family set-up camp in a shady spot and had pinwheels, flags, and Pom-poms waving.

We may have missed the fireworks (too late for little Lu) this year, but watching 100 people swoon with pride as they became Americans was pretty incredible too. 

Here is the newest American Sparrow!

On to the favorite festive things...

Festive Outfits:
Lu donned a "little sparkler" t-shirt from Gymboree and Chambray ruffle bloomers.  She was in the celebratory mood!  

This was her last "first" holiday!  And yes, I do realize that is a very 'mom' thing for me to say...

Festive Beverage:
We toasted the newest citizen with red white & blue bubbly!  Add a spoonful of raspberries and blueberries to the bottom of the glass and fill it up (I used Cava)! 

Festive Dessert: 
My Red White & Bluenana Bundt cake was a huge hit with all the kiddos!  The novice blogger in me didn't think to get a pic until it had been devoured.  Recipe found Here.

More holiday favorites to come after round two of our festivities this weekend...  Hope you have a fun weekend planned too!
