Our 4th of July

Lovey and I celebrated the 4th by ourselves this year.  We still made it festive despite not having a big celebration planned with friends and family.

We decorated the front porch with buntings

Put out our flag

Made a little flower arrangement

And brought out the tea towels mother gave us.

We prepared food and ate like we were planning for a crowd to come over.

We feasted on ribs, North Carolina-style pulled pork with NC vinegar sauce, grilled corn on the cob, roasted potatoes, watermelon, peach ice cream, watermelon, watermelon cocktails, and more watermelon.

We watched A Capitol Fourth and the New York City fireworks on TV.

and ended the evening with a lot of fireworks in the neighborhood.  A very good day.  Happy Birthday America!!
