Fourth of July (belated)


We gathered with some friends in the park by the big river on the festive 4th to celebrate, including both American and Chinese friends.

Our neighbors brought their new (small) charcoal grill to cook up some burgers and chicken skewers, and when the food was almost cooked the park police came by to say “no grilling”–they took a chance and finished cooking anyway without any further incident.

As usual a crowd formed to stand and observe the children and comment on our strange foods (potato salad, ham bao bao, chocolate chip cookies)…

And Papa said a few words about the Declaration of Independence so we even learned something new!
