We had a wonderful time visiting all of our family and I'm sure the next several posts will be photos of our visit. We had a blast on the 4th. Mike's brother, Jarrett, and his lovely wife, Bobby Sue, hosted the whole family at their home in the country. We were given the royal tour of their home (which they are renovating from the studs up!), picked raspberries in their back yard, went fishing in their pond nib the front yard, ate amazing food (including Greg's famous homemade ice cream), and shot off lots and lots of fireworks. I believe they were at it for something like 5 hours. Yeah...a lot of fireworks. :) I've got lots more pictures to share and some news, so make sure you come back!
The Dad's hanging out down at the dock
(us youngins' were making quite a bit of noise,
plus I was roaming around with my camera. lol)
Homemade chocolate chip ice cream with fresh raspberries!
Olivia watching the action.
Olivia became a serious fire works aficionado,
I'm not sure how many bottle rockets she shot off
but I know we started off the afternoon with 50-some
and ended the night with 0.
If that tells you something.
A lite bottle rocket.
One of the boy's fountains.
After Olivia ran out of bottle rockets,
she moved on sparklers.
Not nearly as impressive sound wise,
but it shows up a lot better in the dark.
I think a wonderful day was had by all.
Thank you Bobbie Sue and Jarrett,
for having all of us.
We loved it.
