our english fourth of july
There were no rodeos, badminton, Whipple shirts, 10k run, or any extra lb's from Aunt Leslie's delicious food this year for the Fourth of July, instead we spent the summer here in Newcastle. I have such fond memories of our Fourth of July Whipple reunions that I just couldn't let the day pass by without having some sort of fun. So we headed to the beach for a bbq with our English friends....which might seem a bit funny, so naturally we eased the whole Independence Day thing by serving up some good old USA sugar cookies and teaching the kids all about America's favorite pass time, baseball of course....no cricket fo us that day! I'm just teasing, we loved our little English Fourth of July, we could't ask for much more; the weather was beautiful, the food was delicious and the company was absolutely perfect. We have such good friends here in Newcastle and are grateful for them in times like these.
