Happy 4th of July Everyone!

Here in La Selva we have a bake sale, parade and all kinds of fun activities in the community. I was very excited to celebrate Maiyo's first Independence Day so I made a bunch of cookies to mark the occasion. They were the hit of the sale, beside all the brownies that is:-)
