Happy 4th of July

Luckily this year, the 4th of July was on a Friday!  That meant that I could party it up after working with friends.  I decided to stick with good, ol' tradition and have a BBQ in my yard.  Bondsteel supplied me with hot dogs, corn on the cob, and hamburger buns.  I was able to get burger patties at one of the local butchers.  So we fired up the grill, cranked up the music, and had a really great night :) 

I normally do not advertise the fact that there is an international living where I do with a big flag hanging off my balcony (I do have one hanging inside in my living room but that's for my personal gratification) but for the 4th, I made an exception.  I decorated my balcony with white lights, hung a big American flag up, and decorated the tables, fence, and rest of the balcony with small flags.  It almost felt like I was at home in the US...I even had some sparklers which my friends had never seen before :)
