4th of July in Switzerland

Yesterday was Coco's very first 4th of July. We had chili dogs at the neighbors and then we all went down by the lake to light off some fireworks and do sparklers. It's always a little weird celebrating the 4th of July outside of the United States, but we had a very fun and festive time, wore red, white and blue (my outfit was the neon version ;) and even encountered some fellow Americans out celebrating in Zurich.

More photos after the jump if you'd like to see. :)

Our gluten-free American flag cake with cream cheese frosting and fresh berries. Delicious!
Coco practiced getting up on her knees and then scooted all over the grass. Her white polo onesie was filthy when we got home! 
Naturally she scooted right for the desserts, but I managed to get this picture first! 
She had a great time and is very proud to be American! Apparently Geneva has a huge fireworks display over Lac Leman because there is such a large American population there. Maybe we'll head that way next year! 

What do you do to celebrate the 4th of July? Have you ever celebrated from abroad? xo
