animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook

the fourth

We attended a couple Independence Day-related events this week/weekend. We kicked off the fourth by going to my brother’s place on Wednesday night for a cookout (fire, hot dogs, mountain pies, beer, you-get-the-idea).

While unrelated to the fourth, we went to a bloodhound demonstration at Canoe Creek State Park this afternoon. It was really cool. Heaven Scent Search and Rescue did the demonstration.

For this evening, we were invited to not one, not two, but three events (I don’t think that has ever happened before). We were already committed to the first event, so that’s the one we went to–the annual Hess Family 4th of July picnic. We hung out there for a few hours and now we’re back home.
