Happy 4th of July!

[Internet Graphic]

Every 4th of July our daughter-in-law's sister hosts a picnic style party in her large backyard.  We arrived at the party around 2:30 p.m.  Our daughter-in-law has three sisters, and between the four of them there are 18 kids all pretty close in age [with one set of twins].  They have so much fun together.

Gift time!

Ellie liked her presents!

To bring this post around to tea... Jeremy gave me a tin of Kusmi Tea from Paris.  It's a brand I've never had before.  The blend is French Cancan - a black tea flavored with raspberry, strawberry, redcurrant, and cherry flavoring.  Sounds good!  I can't wait to try it tomorrow.

It's been a wonderful 4th of July.  May God continue to bless America... and Ellie too!


  1. Happy 4th of July, Phyllis! Hope you have a lovely day and I enjoyed reading your previous post about your spur of the moment tea time. What fun!

  2. Looks like a great party! Family gatherings are fun, I was fortunate to be at one this year, too.
