We got billman's burgers, Mexican corn on the cob, and (not that great) strawberry lemonade down by the river. It was super hot. It seems like it's been much hotter this summer than any of the other summers we've lived here.
I made my dress by tracing one of my cap sleeve shirts and extending it to the widest possible width on the bottom (half of the fabric width). The stripes actually lined up, which is pretty awesome. I used knit stay tape on the neckline, sleeves, and the bottom hem and it worked perfectly. Ansley didn't want to wear her fourth of July dress and the fabric I used for mine was sold out so she wore this one I got for under ten dollars from Crazy 8. I'm thinking I should make a matching skirt for me. . . . The bucket hat is from last year, using the oliver + s pattern.
We bought some fireworks and snaps. Ansley had a lot of fun.
I didn't take any pictures of the local fireworks b/c we didn't camp out for a great spot and I already had a lot from Celebrate America. The next night our neighbors set off some:
And we had some of our own.
