On 4th of July we spent the day at my Aunt's house for a BBQ with my entire family (well, a lot of them anyway). She has a house on Mission Viejo lake and the view from her backyard is absolutely breathtaking. As at most of our family gatherings, there was enough food to feed a small country - all of it homemade and wonderful. They had a street fair less than a mile away and the fireworks show was done at the park next to the lake. The kiddos spent most of the day in the pool, even as the sun began to set and we all took our seats with our plates full of desserts to get ready for the fireworks.
