July 4, 2011
Off to the Book Sale at the school by 8:30 a.m. The sale ran from 10:00-2:00. Lots of people came through before and after the parade and bought lots of books. Don't know what our profit was yet.
Everyone else went to the parade. John brought us homemade strawberry shortcake from the Homemakers' booth. Yum!
Returned home and made Watergate Salad. Jen made fancy 4th of July cupcakes. We left for Ropp's picnic about 4:15. The potluck with grilled hamburgers and hot dogs was delicious as usual.
We returned to the cabin to change into longer pants and long sleeves. Went over to Harry's hanger at the airport to watch the fireworks. Took our bug spray with us. The mosquitoes were not as bad as usual. The fireworks were great. They started around 10:00. A fun 4th of July on the island once again.
