First of all, happy Fourth of July to everyone! Today was the perfect way to spend this wonderful holiday. The sun was shining, it was about 70 degrees and we got to pass out free samples of gelato and sorbet to all the last minute grocery shoppers. We spent the first part of the day in Hanover and the second part in Plymouth. Everyone was decked out in their red, white and blue ready for some all-American hotdogs and hamburgers and a magnificent display of fireworks.
This afternoon was quite an adventure for Lauren and me. It was a very windy day. We set up the table and chairs at our second event. The Ciao Bella sign almost blew away. We had to anchor it down. The umbrella, umbrella stand and table almost flipped over several times. At one point while Lauren was passing out samples, I had to hold the umbrella in place until she could come help take it down. Before she made it over to help, the knob on top of the umbrella came unscrewed and went flying under the truck. Lauren had to chase after it. It was quite an adventure. We finally got the umbrella down and everything was fine…until the flock of birds flew over our heads. Lauren was about a foot away from a major disaster. The disaster was averted and we had a great event.
Lauren and I couldn’t be happier to spend thisFouth in Boston. We are excited to celebrate our country in such a historical city. We are heading out later to listen to Neil Diamond (cue: Sweet Carolina bum bum buuum) and the Boston Pops perform, not to mention the fireworks. We can’t wait for those! We wish everyone a very Happy and Safe Fourth of July! We also would like to say a very special thanks to all those men and women who have served, are serving and will serve our country. We are the country we are today because of you. Please come home safe!
