We celebrated last night (on the 3rd) with our 2nd annual Rooftop Fireworks Extravaganza!
Last year, we discovered that the view from our roof deck was the perfect panoramic venue for prime firework viewing.
So, naturally, we deemed it a new tradition that we intend to keep up as long as every neighborhood (and most neighbors) keeps blasting off patriotic explosives in honor of our nation's birthday!

The food was potluck-style, with all the traditional fixings: cold salads, slaws, dips, chips, and grilled meats (courtesy of my grill-master husband!)
Plus, red-white-and-blue sweet treats:
White balsamic custard tart with berries
Happy Bday, USA!
