do: independence.

wow, feels like we just had a ten-day weekend. i'm exhausted (and way behind on "real" life), so here is a quick glimpse into our 3rd and 4th of july. 

des moines hosts its POPS! concert every year on the lawn of the capitol. the des moines symphony plays while fireworks are displayed. thousands of people attend and i believe it to be the most accessible, cultural event des moines has to offer. 
a close second would obviously be bacon fest. 











 on the fourth, we attended a bbq at our friends' place in sherman hill. it was fantastic. a fenced-in yard, a building full of tenants we know and love (seriously, they live in a magical building and i'm super jealous), tons of great food and hipsters galore. i wanted to take a huge group picture because everyone looked so adorable and festive. 

 i made the barefoot contessa's fresh corn salad. it's simple and delicious. 


 this picture (below) cracks me up because it looks so white trash. 
half-nekkid baby, boxer, and beer cans. 





we ended the night with a view of 9 different fireworks displays and homemade vanilla ice cream. 
it was a picturesque 4th.

  6. This NFL Flag for Washington Redskins is constructed of polyester, measures 3x5 feet, and has two metal grommets for attaching to our 6' aluminum flagpoles or any of our tailgate pole systems. The perimeter of our NFL Flag for Washington Redskins is double stitched and the team logos are screen printed into the flag so they won't peel. Because of its large size, these flags are great to hang on any wall in your game room, sports room, garage.
