4th Festivities

 Me and my daughter Nadia at the 4th of July Parade!
 The girls...me, Nadia and Melinda from Country Dreaming
 Dan-the-Man and Mr. Ken (Melinda's sweetie)
 Vintage cars showing their 4th of July spirit
 Ms. Kansas
 You have to have clowns at parades!
 Nadia gave the John Deere club a standing ovation!
 The Renaissance Festival...God bless them for wearing their costumes on a warm July day!
 Festivities after the parade at Acorn Cottage....BBQ'd burgers, brats, and tons of sides including Melinda's delish Veggie Salsa recipe that I am still waiting for her to share with me...um HUM!!!!
We then headed over to the 4th of July fireworks show at a local park and played a mean game of Yahtzee waiting for it to get dark.  Nadia was the big winner!

The bestest son a daughter a Mom could ever ask for in the whole entire world! Love, Love, LOVE them to pieces!
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!

I always get my Halloween/Fall pumpkins at Trader Joe's. I think my daughter, Mary, lives there. She loves it.
We used to get Three Buck Chuck (wine) there. FANTASTIC price.
Looks like you went wild stocking up on their goodies. An opening of a new store is always so exciting! Seems in our neighborhood they are closing right and left. It's sad.
