July Fourth Celebrations are pretty big around here. We are fortunate to be at Au Sable on this date because there isn't much of a celebration in Puerto Rico on the fourth. Oh, I love picnic food! It reminds me of all the picnics while growing up at Crystal Pond with the Tatem family. Ben made fire torches again from red pine and they burned like crazy. We tried doing this in Puerto Rico for our Winter Solstice Celebration last year but the wood is just too wet there to do well. They make the best fires to start sparklers on and to roast marshmallows. And the fireworks! Every year the neighbors keep doing more and more.
