my big fat greek fourth

This year we celebrated our Fourth with very good family friends of the Greek variety. This particular Greek is quite the amazing cook and put out an insane spread for the large crowd that gathered. Which I naturally took no photos of because Greeks frighten me and when they start to speak in their native tongue I always feel like it is about me.... do I have something in my teeth? Did I just commit a major faux pas? The list goes on. So no photos were taken. But trust me when I say - delicious.

Our bellies got way too full way too many times. Appetizers! Entrees! Desserts! More desserts! It was frightfully cold for a July in Pennsylvania and many blankets and jackets were brought out to warm us all up. And windy! Oh the wind. The kids played in the grass with soccer balls (heaven help me) the entire time and loved their life. And the entire evening was summed up with some of the closest fireworks I have ever seen. Letty covered her ears and hid with her Nonna while David cheered and clapped and just generally loved every second (he's a peach that one). I tried to take pictures... but my camera and I don't do manual mode very well.

Thank you Greeks for hosting us all in your home with all your yummy food. I'll eat again in a few days I'm sure...

Pure joy.
