Happy 4th of July!

Well, I haven't posted in a few days, so how about twice in one day?

We had a nice family day today celebrating the 4th of July in a slightly less than "traditional" way. Let's see, how does it go? - America is baseball, hot dogs, and apple pie. Well, we're a "futbol" family, so we watched the LA Galaxy soccer game.

We grilled shark and salmon - not so traditional, but YUM! One of my kids did opt for hot dogs, though. And, we couldn't pass up the apple pie.

And, of course, no 4th of July is complete without a trip to one of the many fireworks stands that spring up in parking lots all over town. We don't usually attend any of the big firework shows - not a big fan of the crowds. I have to say - sparklers just ain't what they used to be! (The picture below is obviously not a sparkler - they weren't even worth photographing).
