Family Fun for the Fourth

We had a wonderful day yesterday, celebrating the holiday with the kids at Michael and Bernadette's lovely home. They just had their patio redone and it is fabulous. We had some great conversation, really delicious food, roasted s'mores in their fantastic fireplace, played that crazy and frustrating game again and watched the fireworks display taking place at the race track....from their front yard. It was just a grand day!


Every time we see Tresa, we take a photo like this to send her brother in Colorado and her Aunts around the country. Three months to go!!

Tresa and Bernadette.....



Michael the Novice Griller....getting tips from Chris the Master Griller.....

Chris with Michael and Bernadette's Aussie....Teagan......

Bernadette relaxing while we wait for dinner......

Even though it was warm and sunny, their patio is completely shaded....so we had a nice little fire going. You have to so you can make s'mores you know.....

The soon to be mommy and daddy.....

Michael.......
Bernadette playing that crazy game.....that the girls won.....AGAIN!

Chris during the game....the guys did come close....but only for a short time.....

Look at the frustration as Irv tries to come up with a clue to get his guys back in the game! It didn't happen.....

The game always makes us laugh......a lot.....

Beautiful flowers from the yard......

Look at the concentration while waiting for Baby Boy to move so Bern can feel him. We all got to feel him moving yesterday. It's just so magical......

Bernadette and Teagan while we waited for the fireworks to starts so we could head back outside. The mosquitoes were a bit on the hungry side.......


Have a wonderful day today and do something really nice for yourself.....

How fun! Tressa is glowing and getting more beautiful--if that's possible--as her pregnancy moves along. I'm excited about this grandbaby and I'm not even related! LOL

You have a beautiful family! Glad you had a wonderful celebration with them!

Kathy, your family looks so warm and friendly. I know how you feel when family gets together, whether it's a a holiday or just any day. Looks like you had a nice holiday. And look at that belly. It won't be long, Grandma.
