This is probably our last 4th of July in the South of France so we decided to have a little party. It was fun. Only 4 families total, but once you add in kids, the amount of people quickly adds up. It was funny because we had two American families, one British family and one Scottish family.
It wasn’t anything fancy, just some American standby’s. The ever-popular deviled eggs, hot dogs and sliders and some BBQ chicken. We did have a fancy French cheese plate though which was lovely.
I guess they thought it would be funny to bring us some “Gallo” wine that was made in California and some of these cookies and cream Nestle chocolate bars. The toothpicks really add to the gourmet-ness of it all, no?
It was a super fun 4th of July with our friends – one we will never forget for sure. The kids ran around the house like crazy, switching from the pool to the trampoline to the inside. Once the Pastis was poured and the Jell-o shots were all consumed, we lit off our piddly little fireworks. There wasn’t anything fancy, just a good handful of bottle rockets and roman candles. Just something to get the kids all excited.
We didn’t go to bed until 2 and I’m sure there were a few sore heads this morning, but it was a great 4th!
