happy 4th!

We had a fantastic and summery 4th of July weekend - full of friends, good food, and a 13 pound spiked watermelon.

Our friends came over for a barbeque in our backyard and brought their dogs...

I made a marinade for the kabobs from my new favorite cookbook - The Herbfarm Cookbook - using oregano from my herb garden. This is the most fantastic marinade I've ever had - recipe on Vicious Dishes.

We had to skip the DC fireworks this year, but we did catch a good display at a local high school:
