Fourth of July Party
Oh my goodness, I have the best friends and neighbors. It felt like a neighborhood block party and I couldn't find anyone who wasn't smiling because we were together.
Approximately 75 of them showed up, including two firehouses of the valiant and lovely firemen and a firelady.
These were in my front yard.
They honked the engine horns and all the kids squealed with delight.
My hubby cooked fantastic hamburgers and hot dogs.
But I think he was hot... because next thing I knew he was in the pool with a handy water gun.
All the kids got bubbles. The bubbles were so cute, shaped like ice cream cones and the bubble mixture smelled exactly like strawberry, chocolate or vanilla ice cream.
But my friend, Mary, should win the bubble blowing championship!!
We had homemade ice cream and hamburger cupcakes
Everyone brought something, and everything was delicious.
We celebrated a new engagement.
A new boyfriend:
An almost new baby.
My daughter's god son.....
Which would make him my grand god son... finally.
And water gun fights:
After the party, we went to the cul-de-sac down the street and watched fireworks...
We oohhhed and
And were amazed with delight.
My neighbors and friends made this holiday the best Fourth we have ever had. I thank them for the fun, food and friendship.
