Fourth of July
Los Angeles, California: Our day was
probably very much like yours - backyard barbeque with family and friends,
followed by fireworks. The weather was just outstanding in Los Angeles, and
everyone exercised early - and a lot.
Leo's little plastic pool was filled with water so he could "swim", but he had a
lot more fun squirting
everyone with the hose.
I baked a blueberry tart, Lenny made his famous Bean
Sprout Salad and we all drove to Pasadena to celebrate the 4th of July
with Lenny's sister, Colleen, Tyson and their new baby boy. Leo has a
gorgeous cousin and - oh goodness, newborns are so teeny - and
Leo is very gentle with him.
Tyson grilled burgers and brats, and we had a variety of side dishes.
Everything was delicious and we thank Colleen and Tyson for a great holiday
and for being brave enough to host the family with a new baby in the
Colleen gave birth six weeks ago and Lisa is due in about six
weeks. Both ladies look fantastic!
After the party, Lisa and I came home so Lisa could go to bed,
while DT, Lenny, Leo and Tyson went to The Rose Bowl to watch the fireworks
show. Male bonding. And though it is now quite late, Dave and I are awake. Our
Granddawg, Reese, is quivering and growling on the foot of our bed, quite
distraught over all the fireworks still exploding around town.
