Happy Fourth of July! We live for the Fourth on our block. Our little slice of Mayberry shuts down the street for an old fashioned block party to rival anything Aunt Bea and Andy could have put together. Here's the itinerary for our 16th annual ode to our nation (rolled up in a scroll, tied with a pretty ribbon and hand delivered to everyone on the block - I love our neighbors!).

12 noon Sunglasses Decorating & Tattoo Station

The only fireworks allowed on our street.
These flag cookies inspired by SugarBelle.
