How's THAT for a Patriotic photo? Kolachi posed for her calendar shot while the kids made 'firework' pancakes (a drop of natural blue food coloring makes nice fireworks if you draw it out with a chopstick!)
Even Percy got to join in on the outside fun time!
Kolachi was entertained by a HUGE raw bone....which is why the cat was able to be outside unmolested.
It was somewhat overcast and cloudy-- which lent itself well to enjoying some sparklers during the day (since we were NOT going to let the kids stay up until firework time this night).
