Happy Freakin' Fourth!!

It's 12:24am.  I have to be at work by 7am tomorrow.  But check it out you all, I just finished this beauty!

Right?  I mean come on!  (Fabulous cake recipe found at Pioneer Woman.)

Also?  Our town hosts a really big parade and also a Drum Corps show.  So last night when we pulled up to our driveway, this was across the street:

Awwww yeah, baby.  I loves me the Fourth of July! I get all weepy when the soldiers go by in the parade.  I clap along to the amazing marching bands (really, that's not an oxymoron.)  I bow down to the Mr. since he usually has the 5am duty of going and securing us a prime "spot."  And don't even get me started on how much the kids love it.

Hope everyone has a fabulous and SAFE holiday!  Kisses!

Kudos for sure! Makes me want to fly on out right now to share it with you!
p.s. I left an email for you.

YOU made that cake all by yourself? You rock baby! I get weepy whenever I see soldiers in parades too. Hell, I almost started crying just looking at that photo of the drum corps.

Hope you all had a great 4th! Heat wave here. Gah!

I do love a good drum and bugle corps. (And as a former member of an amazing marching band, I take offense at your slight.) Can you mail me a piece of that cake as an apology?? =>
