Happy Fourth of July

 Knee high by the fourth of July!

 Fourth of July Parade

 Our Karate school in the parade.

 A replica of our local retreat house!  That was absolutely splendid!

 Candy and more candy.
I believe we came home with 8,000 tootsie rolls.

 Sugar High.

A Quick Visit with N&K
 Galadriel & Eowyn giving a #1 pinon demonstration.


 Taking a quick jump in the pool.

 Bottle Rocket!
Thank you for a GREAT TIME!

 Fourth of July falling on a Friday takes more creativity than the usual brats, hot dogs and hamburgers.  We opted for shrimp-kabobs (shrimp, mushrooms, pineapple, peppers, onions)
 Since the scallops ended up being sooooooooooooooo tiny we opted to cook them up in a pan.
 I got a big kick out of Fr. Z's reply about whether the Fourth of July had a dispensation for eating meat.... HERE. Hilarious!
Aliens chose fish sticks and custard.

 Sam and Frodo treated us to a nice fireworks display.

Excellent, boys!

Happy Fourth of July!


  1. Oh my goodness, the flag ladies were outrageous. And as usual, the pictures of your family are great.

  2. No words under the walking flag. Oh, I know, because you couldn't write while laughing so hard. LOL!
