Happy 4th of July!

Every year, we go to our friends Van & Rita's house for their big 4th of July bash. This year was no exception. The only difference is that there were storms in and around the area.

They have a nice built in pool - but there are so many kids in it, 
that there's no way I would get in...not to mention the whole bathing suit thing ;-)

The party is potluck, and everyone always brings such good food.

 We talked to our good friends, Tim & Candida..Tim used to work for my company..

We kept hearing thunder in the distance, and got the kids out of the pool...then it started!

We moved inside...100 or more people in a house, all wet, dripping...God bless the clean-up!

The kids didn't mind, they had lots to eat!

The weather cleared up just in time to put on a spectacular show, as usual. 

Our neighbor is having a party tonight...geez...3 in a row? Not sure if we can muster one more!


  1. Wow, that sky was really dark. Still got to see fireworks though, glad to see that!

  2. Yeah, glad someone understands 'the whole bathing suit thing' - glad you enjoyed your time despite the storms. Happy Independance Day!

  3. As long as everyone has a good time, who cares about the weather! Enjoy your holiday weekend!

  4. WOW... you two have become quite the party animals;o)) Glad to see you having all that fun!!

    Happy Fourth of July!!

  5. Looks like a fun time was had by all - except for the rain part. :) Glad it cleared up in time for the fireworks!

  6. Looked like quite a rainfall. Nice it didn't manage to spoil the celebration.
