Happy Fourth!

To celebrate our country’s birthday, I made traditional American favorites. Fajitas, peppers, rice, black beans, and fresh guacamole. We’re going out to Lakewood later to lick gelato while we watch the fireworks.


My daughter and I rode our bikes in the neighborhood parade as part of her school’s contingent. The newly elected mayor was there, along with these two very serious looking gentleman sweating their asses off while their boss was in cargo shorts and a t-shirt. Must have been prepping for a secret service interview. Yes, those are ear pieces.

There were a few cool cars in the parade. My favorite was this lovely Eldorado ridden by the Trash Queens of White Rock. Their outfits were impressive, especially the tiara made from water bottles.
