Google has brought out a set of lawn chairs — and a couple of pets — for its doodle celebrating Independence Day.

The artist, San Francisco-based Brian Kaas, explained the illustration was inspired by his own memories of July 4 block parties. “I spent a lot of my summers sitting on a lawn chair with my neighbors, friends and family,” he said. “When we would get up, the neighborhood pets would often steal our seats.”

Google’s previous July 4 doodles have featured a lot of red white and blue — but this year the Stars and Stripes just put in a cameo, with two small flags sitting in a vase next to a jug of lemonade.
