Burger Tradition

Submarine Sandwiches- that is what we did EVERY year on the 4th of july. Other things included a parade in Caldwell, fireworks at the Hils' house in Efland or at the courthouse in carrboro- and one year there was a parade in Graham maybe?

I personally LOVE fireworks but we haven't seen them (on the 4th) in a couple of years. Last year we were at a buffet dinner in OC while the fireworks show was going on (the place was empty!) and this year we had a wonderful afternoon at our old house with the neighbors- Charlie loved the doggies!

So I made a platter of subs and we enjoyed the weather & company. Happy 4th of July! One year we'll make it to DC- that will be fun!

mom would be proud

I think it's fitting that on the day my mom would have turned 60- I did something I know she'd be proud of! Well- she'd probably be proud of me for lots of things..... :)
After Charlie went to bed I *thought* it would be a good idea to go grocery shopping and get it out of the way. I never thought the store would be so crowded at 9pm! Maybe it is the holiday weekend....
Anyway, mom would be proud b/c at the checkout the woman gave me my total- $40 something dollars and said- "wow, you got a lot of groceries for 40 dollars- I am impressed!" Oh it was a great Barbara Burger moment- and it made me smile lots.

Love you and miss you mom!
