Independence Day

Like most other true-blue Americans, we celebrated the 4th of July yesterday. Coz Saturdays are made for partying.

My brother, sister-in-law and nephew came up for the weekend, and parked their motorhome by the river at Mom & Dad's.
Perfect weather... hot in the sun, wonderful in the shade.
We had us a nice barbeque.

Janet got a teensy bit testy with the photographer.

But then her grandson, Rogan, got her smiling again.

Susan told a story to Grampa, & she proved
she inherited her story-telling skills from her papa.

Jimmy flexed some muscles & shot a grin for us.

We did us some four-wheelin' and golf cart ridin'.
Sam parked his under the apple tree.

Then the sun started to go down behind my brother, Jim.

So we had us a nice campfire.

Yep, those are recliners for Mom & Dad. Jim brought 'em up.
He threw 'em on the trailer with their 4-wheelers.
Bet that was an interesting sight on the highway.

When it got darker out, Bob brought out the sparklers.

The kids had a blast, and it got smokey as all git out.

Once the smoke cleared, Bob set off some fireworks for us.

My family knows how to have a good time!
