4th of July 2012 Party

Hello! How's everyone, especially to all my American readers who celebrated the 4th of July? As you can tell, we are all tired, but I am so glad the party turned out so well. My husband and I were elated to be hosting the 4th of July party again for the second time, and it was as much
fun as the first time. It was great seeing and talking to my dear friends who are fun and full of energy... some I see two or three times a year,
so it was nice catching up with them. Of course, a party isn't a party without food. The table was full of decadent seafood- lobsters, crabs, clams, boiled eggs, linguica and we added some corn as it sounds more like a healthy meal, right? And because I don't want to miss anything, I always take pictures at every party.

Lyla laughing so hard. I love this girl. Her smiling face is so pure.

A perfect day to keep these kids cool. They love water slides that hubby had set up right in our backyard.

Late night snack- halo-halo (made by my dear friend Alpha. Thank you Alpha!), a Filipino dessert that has various fruit ingredients that are all mixed together along with shaved ice and evaporated milk.

YUM! My husband lived in Boston for a year and he raved about the seafood even though he's not really a big seafood eater.

The moon looks fascinatingly eerie.
