Independence Day

We host an annual Independence Day Celebration….


Which means making fresh squeezed lemonade
Pippi is a helping hand in the kitchen!

And she modeled new and creative uses for my decorations…

Then the big girls arrived and stunned us all with their creative genius:


We canceled fireworks due to the drought…..

So we added a parade…

Isn’t he the most handsome boy you have ever seen?

and we added water balloons…

This little girl brought smiles to everyone’s face (those are Kate and Ruthann’s smile’s)

and her dad did too with his flavored ice….

and I remembered to grab a picture of myself with Pip.

Just a few days left  until our next celebrations and we realized we are going to cancel fireworks, again……darn drought!

How do you celebrate our nation’s Independence?
