Celebration of Stars and Stripes With a Healthy Treat!

Happy Independence Day!!! I hope everyone has an awesome day with awesome friends and family! Oh yeah...and BBQ and Fireworks too! We are spending the holiday with my friend Rhonda...a 4th of July tradition! We will be eating good food, playing games, watching the kids play, and enjoying being together in our land of the free! We will end it with fireworks of course!

As you celebrate be sure to remember how blessed we are to live in a country where we have freedom!


Yesterday the boys and I made 4th of July Fruit Kabobs to take to our celebration at Rhonda's. I wanted a healthy treat and since I'm craving strawberries right now I thought these would be perfect! I found a picture of these on partycity.com. We decided to use marshmallows instead of bananas due to making them the day before. We didn't want the bananas to turn brown. The boys and I had a blast making these! And...they may or may not have eaten a few pieces of fruit (and a marshmallow or two) while assembling! ;-)



Ingredients:
Skewer Sticks
Blueberries
Strawberries
Marshmallows or Bananas

Directions:
Cut the strawberries in half. If you're using bananas, cut them into circles. Alternate each fruit to make an Amercian flag. Enjoy!

Very happy, helpful, hungry boys! :-)


Happy 4th of July from Road Runner Girl!!!
