For Independence Day, we drove to Pasadena and bought new dishes at IKEA. Here are the adorable bowls, in Palm Springs-y orange and green:
Jason loves the square black plates. I love the wide bowls with just one flower.
Here are the side plates.
And FINALLY I have a great big serving platter.
Then we stopped at a fast foodish noodle place, because we were low on time and high on hunger. I ordered the tofu lo mein:

After we got home, we had just enough time to get changed for a night hike. We climbed the Lykken Trail and watched five fireworks displays at once.
Hope all of you had a great Fourth of July and are having an equally good fifth of July!
