Even though we are outside the US we had a great 4th of July BBQ complete with burgers, chips, potato salad, baked bean, watermelon, and yep you guessed it a flag cake. The only differences were the homemade buns and no fireworks.
We were feeling a little patriotic and decided to perpetuate the loud American stereotype so we belted out the national anthem facing the flag cake. I wonder what our neighbors thought?
We concluded the evening by a little competitive game of kickball. We even had a little crowd as the neighborhood boys climbed the fence and became our cheering section. Overall it was a great celebration.
