4th rerun


I know the 4th of July was almost a week ago but since this blog is a record of our experiences here in Scotland, I’m going to post a few pics and memories.

We had a great group of friends over.  Our cookout was nearly defeated by British weather but in true rebel fashion, we decided to forge on and have a cookout in our living room. Burgers, hot dogs, slaw, baked beans, strawberry rhubarb pie, and gooey butter cake ensured we all got a taste of home.

Trying to work the Red, White and Blue theme.

Scotty flew a couple American flags from the balcony!  Not sure what our neighbors thought of that – we’re already the weirdos who actually spend time sitting out there.

Party Favors - no sparklers to be found over here so we settled for party poppers.

Tootsie Pops make you think of America, right?

Amazing flag cookies lovingly handmade by Katy!

Chatting with friends.

Jeremy and Katy - they brought the flag cookies!

Ashli, me, Todd, and Dianna

All in all, the 12 of us (Americans and of our neighbors from the north) had a fun time reminiscing about 4ths spent in America, favorite American foods, pastimes and other good memories.  We even got a bit of a personal freedoms lecture from one of the Canadians!  The irony was classic.
