Weekend Holiday Fun!



 The BG, kids and I had a great weekend out at my Mom and Dad’s home this 4th of July Holiday!

Their place looks so beautiful, all of their hardwork really shows around their grounds.

Friday evening Poppa Bob (my dad) took us all to the Fireworks.

Saturday we had a family cookout.

The BG and I brought the prizes and set up the games for kids and adults alike: Three Legged Race, Sack Jump Race, Balloon Toss, and a game of Big Foot where everyone had fun chasing people around with water balloons!

We also had a Badminton Tournament, Corn Hole games, and swimming in the pool!

We drove home today and are all just a little tired from all the sun and fun!

I think I will wait till tomorrow to clean up and unpack before I dig into what I have going on in my sewing/crafing room!

    Looks like you all had a ball! We celebrated last week by going out of town and renting a cabin. It was so fun.

    4th of July is one of my most FAVORITE holidays … so family and friend oriented and so NOT commercial (in my opinion). Just a celebration of this wonderful country we live in. Happy Birthday America!!

    Yes, the corn around Pittsburgh, PA is more than knee high and looks to be a bumper crop this year because of all the rain and sunshine … YUM!!!
