The fourth of July is really the beginning of the mid summer celebration of flowers and good warm weather and just being outside all the time.  Our habit is to be at the beach on the fourth and the last few years Z & A and friends Amy and Ian have joined us…for reading, good food and, always, a few “projects”…but Zach’s yummy breakfasts started us daily…
