We had two new recruits for shucking corn this year!
The day's menu consisted of watermelon, kid-shucked corn-on-the-cob (which is way better than adult-shucked corn-on-the-cob, in case you were wondering), barbecue chicken, baked beans, and flag cake. There may also have been root beer floats made from the Root Beer Party Keg from Costco.
I can neither confirm nor deny this.
Of course, the slippy slide and blow up pool were out and the kids played in it most of the day.
Then we had a few fireworks to watch.
I can't believe I let my kids hold fire.
It was a late night for my normally-early-to-bedders.
Sophie even let it slip that she was "pretty tired, Grandma".
But it was a special night. And we all slept in the next morning...
If you call 7 am on the dot sleeping in.
And just for the record, I don't.
