These were taken on the evening of the 2nd. Mom made cookies and I got to help with the family recipe Potica (nut roll). The Potica came out beautifully - and will be attempted in the smaller home kitchen sometime soon.

Drove up to Mom's bakery - Taconite Brew and Bakery (Aurora, MN pop. 1500) - to help out with the festivities for the 4th of July. The best part - Aurora (along with several other small towns in the area) celebrate on the 3rd to allow families to travel to the big city of Virginia (pop. 40k) for the actual 4th.
