Yom Haazmaut dinner was a festive affair with our traditional homemade 'Israeli Spread' - falafel (baked not fried), Israeli salad, pickles, chumus, techina. Friends and neighbors joined us for the meal and to watch the fireworks across the street. The concert actually ended at a reasonable hour and there was no noisy 'afterparty' - even though it took a while for all of the revelers to disperse back to their homes or wherever it was they were going.
At 12:30AM - Daddy and I drove to Be'er Hatikvah (a grassy area along the back entrance road to Ramat Bet Shemesh) where there was a concert underway for 'youth and the young at heart' - we went to see Shai Gabso perform. He finally took the stage at 1:20AM and the concert lasted until 2:45AM. By 3 we were home and after uploading the pictures and movie clips to Daddy's computer it was time to sleep.
This morning we had a waffle and ice cream breakfast followed by fluffy icing beating/piping and decorating. We didn't go on a tiyul of any sort - because we were all kind of exhausted. Phil went to the Ashdod beach with some friends so Freddie and I got to go pick her up at tzomet shimshon. (Hey, it was an excuse to get out of the house.) Ezri had a drum lesson and in the afternoon Daddy took Dibble to the park because there were some jumping castles set up.
I helped make some hamburger buns and sneezoned some baked potatoes for the dinner bbq which we'll be enjoying in about 2 hours. Saba & Savta will be joining us for the occasion - so the food and company are gonna be awesome!
Not too many plans for tomorrow yet - first we'll get through the rest of today.
