4th of July Fun

What a fun week we had with Hubbys Sister and Husband! They arrived bearing food gifts from Pittsburgh.... my favorite Italian bread and Sarris chocolates. Boy they sure know the way to my old Pittsburgh heart! Yummy!!!

The boys golfed, we girls did a little shopping, and we ate out a lot! The evening before the 4th we met our Son and his cute girlfriend in town (Kansas City) on The Plaza. The Plaza is known for all it's fine dining and shopping. We sampled apps at several restaurants...

ending a beautiful evening with a roof top view at the Sorella Hotel.

And then it was home to add the finished touches to our 4th of July dessert, aren't they cute! Only I put the cashew beaks on upside down, the sharp end should have been sticking out. What can I say... it was a long night!

We had an early picnic at our Sons new home... hash brown casserole, hot doggies  and treats! The evening ended with a beautiful local fireworks display.

Last night we went out for our last meal together, barbecue, a Kansas City must for all guests. As we left the restaurant the tornado sirens were blowing. My poor sister in law... it is a frightful situation and sound when you are not used to it. Rain came down in torrents with an impressive lightening display, fortuneately no tornado touch downs here! 
Today they are on their way home and back to their busy life, we will miss them.. until our next visit!
I will return to my normal routine for awhile and hopefully spend more time in my sewing room, until our next summer adventure!
Happy Summer!!
