Fun on the Fourth

Fourth of July was a "blast", no pun intended...well, ok, it was intended... :) This is me and my totally hunky husband on the beach pretending like we can fish and surf and stuff like the Wilson family. :)

Hubby and I headed over to Kimmy's house for the annual 4th of July food and fun fest (which has been a tradition for MANY moons).

I was so excited this year, because I was to meet my blog friend Debra from Clothed_with_Scarlet. I am so happy to have finally seen her face to face, got wonderful hugs and shared some laughs. She is a wonderful woman and I'm proud to call her my friend!

Kim and I rocked at horseshoes...ok, we didn't actually get any points, but we played and it was fun...I decided that she had won so we could go stand in the shade!!!

Throwing tomahawks is so much fun...don't knock it till ya' try it! :) Only a real woman can throw a tomahawk with grace! Hee hee. :)

After fun and games we enjoyed tasty food and yummo desserts (and great chips!!!)...some fun at the beach (this is where I PROVE that Kim and I can be cute...well...ok...cute for our AGE!) LOL

Hubby and I left a bit early so we could get our boat onto the river to catch the City fireworks display. There were a bunch of boats anchored in the river, lot's of families having fun on the water under a nice clear sky (thank you Lord!! :) ). The fireworks were beautiful! (don't you love looking at photos of fireworks they are so not exciting!)

Yup, this is the result of taking photos with your shutter open on a swaying boat...here are all the boats on the water, lol...

Look at the moon...what you didn't know that was the moon?

I hope you all had a lovely Independance Day Celebration!


  1. OH that's funny. Love the open shutter pictures. And wow on you getting a "normal" picture of you and your hubby! The picture you sent me of "us" was funny because HE is normal and we ARE making the exact same face. Too fun! Now on to my birthday! See I'm already wanting cake!
    Love you my friend.

  2. Glad you had so much fun and great pics! That one of you and Kim IS really cute!! And I like the fireworks - that must have been great to watch them on the water.

    Have a fabulous day!!
