4th of July with Delores and Grace

Happy 4th of July, everyone! Man, I miss that southern BBQ...That was the only thing missing today. That southern food sticks with you no matter how far you wander off. You just crave it on days like today. Virginia is "the south", but we do not have BBQ like we do at home. Regardless...What a wonderful day we have had today! Our friends, Delores and Grace, came to our home to celebrate the 4th with us, and we had the best time. The girls had a blast together, and we hardly heard a peep out of them all day because they were having so much fun catching up for lost time. We haven't seen them in a long time so today was VERY special. The girls are just pure joy. The connection between them is very special and very evident. Delores, Van, and I just sat around talking, catching up, watching movies, laughing, eating, researching some things on the computer, and having a relaxing day together. We had the girls decorate their bikes and get dressed up for the 4th in their best red, white, and blue. Then, we took them out to ride on the sidewalk in their own little July 4th parade. Even our buddy, Sugar, got dressed up for the occasion in her cutest doggy duds and bandana. Even Bindi, our cat, got into her patriotic spirit today and cat napped in the "America" basket on the dinner table. It was lots of fun! Here are some special pictures from the day we spent together.
