Celebrating Independence Day!

 This year of 4th of July celebration was a little different.  It fell on Sunday, and Bob had to work on Saturday and Monday.  Our town had a parade and activities in the park on Saturday and fireworks on Sunday.  We had a normal Sunday, with church and just relaxing, but then had Laura and Heather and families over Monday night.

Aaron smoked a pork roast and took it along so we had pulled pork sandwiches for supper.  We decided to just keep things simple, with baked beans, fruit salad, veggies and dip and baked beans to go with it.  Heather took a yummy cheesecake along for dessert.

Here's a few pics of our evening, and as usual, most of the attention was on the grandkids!  But we all had a nice time together.  It was steamy and hot, so we opted to enjoy the air conditioning inside.  :)



Alaina and Ruby love Cassie!  


Enjoying supper.



Cassie!  She is the most smiley baby, but when I get out the camera, she focuses on it and won't smile.




I caught her smiling here though - while making a mess with carrots.



She loves to grab things, including hair!  Alaina actually thought this was pretty funny.



They're all playing together.  Such a happy sight for this Grandma!

They-are-so-cute! Every one of them!

And may I please ask something?

Could you please consider making your Print, a bit larger? For my old eyes, it is very hard to read.

I know, others say to make it larger, on my own computer... But I am on an ancient iMac, and I hate to fiddle around with size.<--"Poor Me" I know.

Please and thank you, if it works out for you.
