Daddi made us Fwied Chicken and Potato salad to feast on

I , of couwse taste tested evewything and pwonounced it nommie

and then the hoomans went up to the deck of ouw building to see what was going on (I stayed in the nice cool apawtment fow a post dinnew snooze)

hoomans all ovew the neighbowhood wewe having pik niks on the woof tops

and boats wewe gathewing on the Hudson Wivew to get good positions fow viewing the fiwewowks

they kept coming and coming

big and small

and then waiting fow the sun to set  in NewJoisey

the fiwewoks stawted about 9:30 and went on fow about 35 minuteses ow longew  i don't know

my pawents had a pawfect, unobstwucted view fwom the woof, but honestly..I could see the same thing fwom ouw living woom

when it was all ovew, all the boats tooted theiw howns and it was vewy festive

Mommi and Daddi said good night to the empiwe State Building  and theiw neighbows and came back downstaiws to find me

snuggled and asneep in bed

Your fried chicken looks so very good. Your Dad really knows how to make it crispy.

We watched the NYC fireworks on TV at home because we had rain at night. They were amazingly beautiful - Mom said they were the best she has ever seen and wished she had been there in person.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Your day sounds just lovely! I'm drooling over that sundae in your header, too. We had a party here on Saturday and then snoozed away last night while the people went down to the riverfront and watched the big Sky Concert. I was glad to get my beauty sleep!


The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

What a great way to spend the day, especially the snuggling with you part!!!

Jake of Florida said...

We watched your fireworks from the safety of our living room TV and were thinking about you the whole time.

They were beautiful -- much better than any of the others we saw!!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Thanks for sharing the fireworks. Momma loves big fireworks but of course does not want to go into the big bad city to see them. Sigh.

Gus said...

We have watched your wonderful video three times! We only wonder who is it that Mommi keeps apologizing to? Tell her she has nothink to apologize for...she is creating art for the huddled masses.


Wyatt said...

What a nice holiday...looks like your favorite part was the fried chicken and tater salad!
Stanzie stayed close to mom when the fireworks started. I barked and growled, cuz I'm a tough guy. hehe


Bocci said...

Thanks for sharing the New York fireworks and the rooftop parties with us, Asta. And that fried chicken is making us drool! You are a lucky pooch! Yum!

Your buddy,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
Sure you had a pawesome way to celebrate!
Glad you all had a great time!
Kisses and hugs

TwoSpecialWires said...

Asta. Sweet Sissie. You are so brave. We watched your (beautiful) fireworks last night ... on television ... and even those scared us a little bit. But your mommi's laugh made us happy, when we watched them again tonight. All is well now, and we can see it was with you, too. No wonder, after that yummy fried chicken that Daddi made for you!

Happy July Fifth! (We like the day after as much as the actual day!)
Jake and Fergi

Amy & the house of cats said...

Hi Asta! It looks like you had a great 4th of July! And wow, what a great view you have of the fireworks! We can't see them at our house, but we at least didn't mind the noise too much. But we didn't really get any super tasty foods like you had either!

Raising Addie said...

WOW Asta you had the BEST 4th of July!

Those fire works videos were so much fun! We didn't get to see any where we live but we could hear some really loud fire crackers in the neighborhood.

Thank you for sharing those cool videos!

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie, Lucie and Hailey

Oskar said...

Oh Asta, I hate to admit it, but I hate the loud firework noises! Some people even had a big loud show by our house again last night. I say they're a week to late!

I'm glad you & your people had a good time. That chicken looks super, extra yummy!
