4th of July

Well it's hard to believe that the 4th of July has already come and gone but we had a good one. This was yet another bitter-sweet holiday for me because my grandparents always had big family parties on the holidays and the 4th of July was no exception. So to honor my Grandma who I miss so much we had a little get together of our own. It was fun to decorate and think of her and the fun times we had.
We enjoyed having a few friends and neighbors over for a bbq, nothing compared to my Grandma's hosting skills but I have to start somewhere :)
We ALMOST got the picture until Norris was scared off by a firework
Best attempt at a family picture :)

I so wish we could have come!! It looks like you had fun and so did the dogs. I really like Norris' hat in the family pic, you all should have worn one!

You are a great party thrower!(?) I think you are taking after your grandma wonderfully. (as far as I can know about it:)

Good job! I do love that family pic!
The big question is, was there a flour or water fight involved? :)
