We started with our traditional red, white, and blue topped pancakes or waffles, this year Mac requested pancakes. We had cornmeal pancakes topped with strawberries and blueberries and canned whipped cream to look like a flag. I had to resist the urge to make little stars between the blueberries and to layer out thirteen stripes. The girls remembered that it was America's birthday and wished her a great day.
Happy Birthday America!!!
After that we walked around campus a bit, so we were able to check off a Summer Bucket List item. We will have to go back, the MSC was closed which Matt and I haven't seen since the renovation. But we showed our friends around to see the pennies on the statue of Sul Ross, the Century Tree, Fish Pond, my first dorm, and Kyle Field. We loved walking around, although I think Henry is still mad about having to stay off the grass around the MSC!
Johnny at Kyle Field!
All in all, a fantastic day, perfect for the 4th. I am proud to live in our great country, that, despite its flaws, is great. Thank you to everyone who works hard to make it great and for our servicemen and women, past and present, that stand ready or actively defend it. Happy 4th of July!
