July 4th. Parties and fireworks in Yorba Linda and Newport Beach were on the Calendar. Shindig enthusiasm filled the air. Then the little people came down with separate but equal plagues. Fever with malaise for one, the other a nasty hacky cough. Just splendid huh? This of course put the kibosh on all things related to sunscreen, swimming, eating, drinking and pyrotechnic fun. Cue sad violins.
However, a fancy dinner with Chef Jon and sparklers the night before made up for missing the 4th. Our family was content with this night alone to celebrate our nations birthday this year. Thank goodness. Both the contentment and these photos made a Mama smile.
