Our holiday was generally safe, except for the bit where our neighbor almost killed us with her fireworks. It was one of those do-dads that had five bundled into one. The first one went straight up like it was supposed to, but with such force it flipped the bundle over. The next shot fired at the neighbor’s house across the street. No one was in the line of fire and those neighbors weren’t home. It was funny until we realized that the bundle had flipped again and was pointing directly at us. All I remember was parents grabbing kids and ducking for cover. It lasted all of 9 seconds but seemed like a minute. Funny now, but definitely NOT funny at the time.
Also, I wanted to point everyone to the Weekend Wokking round-up featuring potato recipes from all over the world. I’ll be hosting the next round-up and the theme ingredient this time is the tomato! Send your entries to me by midnight on the last day of the month. And if you want to host a future round-up email Wandering Chopsticks at wanderingchopsticks(at)gmail(dot)com.
Now for some random pictures since I didn't take any at our BBQ:
Sonny lost 2 teeth on the same day this last week. Doesn't it look like someone punched him in the mouth? He was eating cherries. If you have kids, you may think this is a cute, funny picture. If you don't, you're probably grossed out. Shortly after this picture was taken he lost the second tooth.
Notice how the teeth coming in are larger than the spaces they need to occupy? I think I see braces in his future.
