Fourth of July Sunday Dinner

Fireworks at our local park, July 4, 2010.
Violet puts the finishing touches on her deviled eggs.
I was so preoccupied by The Pickle Project that I forgot to post these photos of Violet making deviled eggs for our Fourth of July Sunday dinner.

She and my mom had a great time cooking together and they told me they made "special deviled eggs for Grandpa"... the ones with lots of paprika.

We had a very traditional Fourth of July Sunday dinner... Dad grilled hamburgers, mom made potato salad, and Violet made her "famous" deviled eggs.  It reminded me of the Fourth of July meals from my childhood.  It was also the best kind of Sunday dinner.  Lots of family, not too much work, and everyone had a fun time.  And to make it even more special, we got to watch Violet enjoy her first fireworks display.  (In previous years she's said "they're too LOUD!")

Happy Fourth of July!

Violet's first attempt at deviled eggs.  Delicious!
