Happy Independence Day to all my fellow Americans!

Unfortunately, Jim has to work tonight because the only other manager at the store won’t be available. So the kids and I are heading over to my parents’ house to barbeque, make ice cream, and watch the casino fireworks displays! It’s truly amazing to see the fireworks being shot off the tops of the casinos.

I’m planning on making some homemade French Vanilla Ice Cream, and some Blueberry Lattice Bars. Maybe we’ll make some fresh strawberry sauce to go on top of the ice cream.

The only potential snag in the plan? This:

We might get some rain today. It rained a little bit last night.

Normally I’m all for rain, but I would REALLY like clear skies tonight!

But a stormy desert is awfully pretty.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday!
