Celebrating Our Independence

We had a fun filled 4th. We grilled out and enjoyed the company of friends. I even made a "themed" cake that turned out to be delicious and addicting! The cake is called The Barefoot Contessa's 4th of July cake. YUM!

Spencer looks so sad here, doesn't he? Poor guy was wondering why he had to eat dinner alone. No really, I think he was just zoning out, he was tired from playing in his pool all day.

Of course we played some Wii bowling. Pam is at Pro status and has to disguise herself to avoid the paparazzi. Here is one fan who got a little out of control!

Later we saw him near the kitchen counter feeling pretty proud of himself for the sneak attack.

Here is Pam vowing no more autographs for the night!

Ramsay is such an excellent bowler, we at times resort to distractions or outright fouls to try to throw him off.

That smirk is due to the fact that even though I walloped him in the head with a pillow in the middle of his shot, he still got a strike!

We got to meet Pam's brother Chris. Chris is just as awesome as Pam and we can't wait to hang out more with him. No doubt these two are related. Very strong resemblance to each other. The look on Pam's face is a priceless as she watches her brother play air guitar.

John was behind the camera most of the night. I think the digital rays or camera moonbeams took their toll on him. I just hope his face doesn't stay like this.

I love your cake! The Barefoot Contessa (Ina) is one of my favorite chefs!

Glad you had such a fun day!

I love the Barefoot Contessa and am always amazed when people prefer Rachel Ray to Ina Garten. Why? Rachel Ray blows some snot on a cracker and folks swoon while Ina whips up a culinary masterpiece from scratch and people call her snobby.

Cool party. Why wasn't I invited??

You know, I don't watch any t.v. Haven't turned it on in over two years unless it's to watch a dvd. I have read a few articles on Rachel Ray and she is too commercialized and phony,IMO.

Lacy, you are so hilarious! If I knew blowing snot was in these days, I could start my own network!!! You were invited, didn't you hear me bugling off my deck? I think you just ignored me! LOL!

Brandy, it wasn't as much work as I thought it would be and it was so good it was worth any effort I made.
