Happy Birthday, America!

For the 4th we celebrated with some good friends of ours, The Ellsworths, on their beautiful property and had the best time EVER!! We played Fort with army men and shot Black cats at the other person's men. (It ended up just being a Mame-a-Thon for the poor army men. lol!

"Retreat! We're no match for their heavy artillery!"

What's a summer time soiree without a trampoline?

At the pond on the paddle boat.

A friendly little game of tug-o-war.

And now, for some barrel racing!

"Pal, you be the barrel and I'll race you!"
"Ok, just steer clear of potholes."

And they're off!
Junior and Dylan round the corner and head back for home.

"Pal, I think it would work better if you held my legs up a little higher."
"Oh. Well, I think it would work better if I were taller or you were shorter. Just sayin'."

Black cat explodes under water. That was cool to watch, even though my picture doesn't do it justice. A large portion of the pond would light up in all shades of yellow, blue and green. It was cool.

Roman Candles across the pond. Looks mystical.

My son lighting fireworks with an older buddy.

And the fireworks for the night were amazing!! Here are a few of my shots from the evenings festivities. Enjoy!

Awesome pictures! We had a great time and are so glad you could come, and made it ten times more so. Thanks. The trampoline pictures were such a cute idea.
