Happy 4th!

Sadly, though today is my sweet Jack's 7th birthday, he woke with a 101+ fever and has felt lousy all day. He couldn't even stomach a bite of his birthday blackberry pie. Fortunately, new Legos, books and a Harry Potter wand have kept his attention! Jack/Harry

We had T's parents over for a birthday lunch of Balsamic-glazed baby back ribs, corn on the cob, Mark Bittman's potato salad, hibiscus iced tea and blackberry and sour cherry pies. I'm full as a tick! The sun has come out, and we're making our way through a lazy, lovely afternoon. Hope you're all well.
