Recap of the Weekend Holiday

What a great weekend!  We had so much fun, saw so many friends and family, and ate lots of yummy food.  I cannot think of a better way to celebrate our freedom!

The view doesn't get much better than this.  I am lucky enough to have a friend who is lucky enough to have a house on the coast.  In high school it was tradition to spend our 4th of July here.  This weekend was a quick visit but brought back some many wonderful memories.

Our our little group of girls now has a new addition.  Meet Lacey!

Now bring on the food...July is when all of the native Maine strawberries are ready to be picked.  The weekend can best be summed up with strawberries for breakfast, strawberries for lunch, strawberries for dinner and of course strawberries for dessert. 

We found some delicious corn at a roadside stand.

It was a perfect accompaniment to my lobster.

Mr. J chose some surf and turf.  Yes, he did eat it all.  He blamed the round of golf on his massive consumption for dinner.

Finally, it would not be the 4th without a good old fashion cookout with burgers, hot dogs, and bratwursts.
