recap

Our party on the 3rd was a barrel of fun. Hillbilly golf, fireworks, food, friends, and no rain! It was wonderful having a house full of people and kids running all over the place and just being able to see and hear people laughing and talking and just hanging out.

Our 4th consisted of family time. We rode our bikes to the parade, ended up with a gallon baggie full of candie and headed to another little town/village for their little fair and a hamburger. Home to crash for naps and then it was bonfire time to roast hotdogs and marshmallows. We hauled the sprinkler out (not that it's heavy by any means) and the kids eagerly donned their swim/bathing suits (in our house swimsuits are for boys and babbingsuits are for girls according to Sam). It was a great day as a family and very relaxing. A wonderful way to end a holiday.




***UPdate: here's a picture of what a hillbilly golf stand looks like... I do not have any inkling as to who these people are though... Hope this helps! :)

Wow, do you guys ever just chill? Busy family! That's very good though, much better than all sitting around watching tv all summer.

Sounds like a great day!

What's Hillbilly golf, by the way?

It's also called horse shoe golf. It's a stand that has 3 bars on it (one on top of the other) and you have a piece of rope with a golf ball attached to each end. Then you play like horseshoes, but you try and get the golf balls around one of the bars. Top bar is 3 points, the middle bar is 1 point and the bottom bar is 2 points. I didn't play, but watched and it was funny and looked fun. I'll see if I can post a pic.
