After the power came back on we took the kids to an amusement park, which was a hugely popular decision. In the ensuing days we went to an historical farm, grilled out in the back yard, treated Daddy's sunburn, went to a parade, made popcorn and watched Goonies...it's been a fun-filled week.
All that excitement meant that I was not anywhere near the computer for most of the week. Which means I didn't post my 4th of July cookies. So, without further ado, here they are!
Please don't judge me for my picture quality. I arranged them nicely and took some pictures, but they didn't turn out. Lighting again.
Please note the America is not chubby.

And that's all for now. I sent most of these cookies to my grandparents across the country. They haven't been well, so hopefully the cookies cheered them up a little.
I started to make more cookies, to take to cookouts and give to friends, but with the power out, I found myself outlining and flooding by candlelight. The results were not optimal. I did not give the cookies out, nor did I photograph them. The family will be forced to eat them. The horror.
