Hooray...for the U.S.A.! Independence Day lunch.

For lunch today, T ate the following:

  • U.S.A.-shaped sandwich
  • Snyder's Patriot Pretzels
  • vanilla yogurt with raspberries and blueberries
  • Newman's Own Alphabet Cookies (U, S, A) with mini m&m's in between
  • milk with Hershey's Strawberry Syrup

The Uncle Sam hat is a ring, and the stars USA is a pick.

My inspiration for T's red (more like pink, actually) milk came from kewkew at Tots and Me.  Earlier this week, she tinted her children's milk blue.  Although, I have to say that when T saw his milk, he said "Pink. Yuck."  (He doesn't particularly like anything out of the ordinary.)

Did you know...?

"God Bless America" is an American patriotic song written by Irving Berlin in 1918 and revised by him in 1938.*

            God Bless America  

             God bless America,
             Land that I love.
             Stand beside her, and guide her
             Through the night with a light from above.
             From the mountains, to the prairies,
             To the oceans, white with foam,
             God bless America, my home sweet home.
             God bless America, my home sweet home.
