4th of July

Our 4th started out by going to our home town parade.  As usual it was great!! It wasn’t too hot and no humidity yeah!!!  After the parade we went to my oldest daughter’s house and had a cook out.  Her boss was there from her work and she is from Italy and her family came with her and it was so cute watching the kids trying to communicate.  But you know what kids have no communications barrier when it comes to playing.  They were visiting and they wanted to see an all American Parade and Sonya invited them to Ripley where we are known for the biggest parade for a small town.    They were facinated by the muscle cars, the tractors and of course fire trucks.   I appreciated it so much more this year helping them to understand what it was all about .  The one word I did say to them was politician and they got that right away.  They understood the military too and they clapped very hard with us when vetrans, soliders paraded by.  I always cry when the troops march. I don’t know why, I guess I’m so grateful for my freedom and I know it was and is them that gave it to me.
At Sonya’s we had a cookout.  Robbie my SIL cooked burgers, hotdogs and Brats on the grill.  So Good.  We had macroni salad, corn on the cob, baked beans and any kind of chip and dip you wanted.  My treat was I took my old fashion ice cream maker and made home made ice cream.  This years flavor was cherry/pineapple, everyone took a turn at cranking that thing.  I told Sonya, I am going to give this to you and get me an electric one. LOL.  It was so good. 
Today is my son in law’s birthday, he is such a great guy, he and my daughter have been married 25 years and never once have he and I had a disagreement.  Thas saying a lot for a mother in law huh?  Anyway we had our picture taken together at the parade because we both were dressed for the part!!! Happy Birthday Robbie
Robbie and I wasn’t the only ones dressed for the 4th , what do you think. ?
Benji , Hub and Sadie were in the celebration too.
I’ve got some more pictures which I will put in an album if you want to see .
Anyway the 4th was great even though our fireworks were cancelled due to rain again.  So like the rest of you who didn’t have fireworks either I watched it on tv.
I hope your 4th was a good one.

    Happy birthday, Robbie! Pat, you look great and I\’m glad you had a great 4th. We had to pass on the parade in Frankie\’s home town (Ivanhoe) as well as the county fair and fireworks at Rural Retreat Lake because she just wasn\’t up to it but Laura and I did go into town for the fireworks. It\’s a good think I had a fully charged battery and empty SD card because I just set the camera on sports mode and held the shutter release down for as much of the show as my cramping hands could tolerate. I got home with 684 frames and kept the best 35!Frankie says to tell you her good friend Pam lives on Robin\’s Neck Rd. in Gloucester, VA.
