Happy 4th of July from System Pavers! Also known as Independence Day, the 4th of July is a day to celebrate the founding of our nation. We are hoping many of you are spending time with family, having backyard barbeques, enjoHaying concerts, watching a baseball game or a parade, and of course enjoying the fireworks at the end of the day in your outdoor living space. While fireworks are always the icing on the cake after a day of celebration, so is dessert after a great meal with friends. Why not try something a little different this 4th of July and bring out this delicious and easy-to-make treat for your guests? You can’t go wrong with a red, white and blue dessert!
