4th of July, 2013

We had wonderful weather for our 4th of July weekend, and made good use of it.  We rented a bouncy house for the kids on Saturday morning and had it set up until about 8:30 that night.  In all that time there was hardly a minute it wasn’t being jumped in.IMG_20130706_104600_658 The kids spent all day going from the bouncy house to the pool and back, it was great to see the place so active and everyone enjoying the sun!

Later in the day we had a cookout for the kids and families. We had a box of hot dogs and a 2 packages of 1/3 lb burgers, chips, and a bunch of watermelon. All that remained in the end was 3 hot dogs, so I guess everyone was hungry. IMG_20130706_123029_589Later in the evening we had a potluck supper.  We had a pretty good turnout and some really good food. Joyce brought her now-famous Taco Pie. It has become a bit of a fan favorite in these parts!  All the food was delicious, and I doubt anyone went home hungry. We were even able to convince the kids to stop jumping and swimming long enough to eat a bit!

The weather worked with us for the first time in weeks, and it couldn’t have been better.  We are already planning the same for next year. Hopefully the weather cooperates as well as it did this year, and everything goes as smooth.  Thanks to all that helped make some great memories, and we hope to see you all next year!IMG_20130706_210623_333
