We began our celebrations last night on July 3rd with the Turley fireworks display on our street (Fireworks are legal in Fairfax). We made “cowboy burgers” and my favorite Fourth of July treat (cherry pie). It was an enormous success as I set off roughly the equivalent of the ordinance used at the Battle of Verdun. Putting aside the increase of emphysema following the display, it was pretty cool. Tonight we will go to D.C. to watch that other (less impressive) pyrotechnic display.
I hope all of our bloggers have a great holiday.
