I totally missed the 4th July posting bandwagon thanks to a very annoying virus, but don't think you can get out of viewing my fireworks and family snaps from a very fun 4th July weekend.
This Independence day was my 3rd since moving to the States, but my 1st one being married and on my way to becoming a citizen myself. It was very interesting celebrating this holiday with my Peruvian-American family (in-laws). The hot dogs and hamburgers were traded for chicken and anticuchos, there was Peruvian music blaring in the backyard and everytime I turned there seemed to be a new family member to meet. We had a special treat this year as my hubby's grandfather is visiting from Peru.
I was so happy with the result of my 'American Flag Cake' which I got the idea off pinterest. (tutorial coming soon!)
We ate. A lot. We played beer pong and acted like teenagers after finding a cousin's secret stash of fireworks.
The next day a couple of the cousins, Mike and I spent some time at the fun-fair (where Mike won me a stuffed snake...woop!) and joined in with all the locals to watch the incredible fireworks display at the harbour.
