I had the best intentions to take pictures of our Fourth of July party, the beautiful and delicious food, the pretty lights Sean strung up on the back porch, and all of our family and friends enjoying themselves. I failed, however, to follow through. I didn't take a single picture of the food and the few pictures I did take were taken before most of the guests arrived. Oh well. At least I managed to relax a little and enjoy the party.

And enjoy, I did. We had the best time visiting and eating. Most of our friends have babies now, so there were lots of little ones in attendance for Hadley to play with. Hadley shared all of her toys, her walker, her exersaucer, and her jump-n-go. One little guy even fell asleep in the jump-n-go. Hadley patted his arm as his mommy and daddy got him ready to go home.

And the food was fabulous. I love big parties with lots of different foods. Our guests were kind enough to bring all kinds of yummy dishes, like a sinfully good artichoke dip, my mom's marinated slaw, pies, cookies, and lots of bevarages, including a mojito. Yum. I'm still full.

My patriotic trifle also turned out beautiful and delish, although I failed to get a single picture of it. Maybe next time. I will follow up this post with the recipe for my corn salad, which is a fabulous party dish.

I hope your holiday was fun and relaxing!

It sounds like you had a fabulous time! I can't wait to hear about your corn and cilantro salad; those are two of my very favorite things, especially in the summertime!
