We grill up hot dogs and set out a nice assortment of toppings for them. This isn't even everything, there was also cream cheese and red onions. Guests bring sides and desserts.
I really liked the way the flags looked lining up perfectly with their mirror universe counterparts.
I remembered to get a picture of the prize table this year! It's surprisingly hard to give away prizes, I don't know when everyone suddenly became minimalists.

The full outfit. My friend Nancy really liked my shirt, so I changed into an alternate a while later. It was a black and grey flag tank top that was less comfortable due to its artificial fabric. I stayed inside a lot anyway.
It was a gorgeous day. Not overly hot, very pretty skies.
Our new neighbors came over toward the end and we got to pop over to their place and see the progress inside. They've got a lot to do, but they got a pretty good deal on the house and will gain a lot of equity when they get the unpermitted extension up to code. They're cool people and we're lucky to have them next door.
