We were still in Pennsylvania for the 4th of July. My parents’ retirement community had a cookout complete with hot dogs, hamburgers, bbq chicken, potato salad, corn on the cob, fresh fruit, cookies, pie and ice cream! It was blazing hot – like 100° and very humid – but the food and conversation were good. My sister and niece drove up for the cookout, too, which added to the fun. I dressed Coco up in a cute white dress that she has almost outgrown. Oh, a little brown girl in a crisp, white dress. Love it! 🙂
Before we ate though Coco had fun racing one of the residents on his scooter. I actually heard her say to him, “Race ya!” and off she went. After she smoked him 🙂 she chatted him up as he walked to his apartment, held the door for him and said good-bye.
Then we headed down to the cookout to get some food. Mmmm, don’t you just love a cookout? It’s so 4th of July. So all-American. Perfect for the holiday for us expats.
After the cookout Coco blew bubbles, watered the plants, searched for bugs, ran barefoot in the grass and danced. Perfect summer fun.
