On 4th of July, the Sterling crew all got together. We haven't done this for ages so it was great to catch up. Everyone's lives are so busy these days that time rushes by too fast and before we know it months have passed in between get togethers.It was nice to simply hang out without worrying about whether I was going to get to somewhere on time or how far I had to drive.
I didn't take any photos of the food, far too busy devouring it to remember, but Kim and Scott united to make the best pulled pork I've ever had. BBQ is something I never choose to eat except beef tips from Willards, the only BBQ restaurant I will eat from, and pulled pork or chicken have never excited me. But this pulled pork had everyone in raptures, it was simply divine.Thank God they had the foresight to make so much of it as we all had seconds and we all wanted to take some home.
As the afternoon faded neighbors couldn't hold back and were soon letting off their fireworks. We watched theirs but held back letting off ours until it was properly dark. I think part of this was because we had some HUGE ones which I think came from WV.
We finished the evening watching Herndon's firework finale through the trees and then it was time to head back to Meadow House. I left having thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone again, getting plenty of hugs from all, and with some pulled pork in a container tucked firmly under my arm.
