It was a grand party!

We went to my nephew's house for a 4th of July BBQ yesterday. My son took this pic of me, soon after we arrived at the party.

We started the afternoon with a magic show put on by Sophie. She's the one in the sparkly hat. (which I had borrowed for my picture)

This prompted Brian to see if he could pull a rabbit out of a hat!

Henry and Sophie having a few giggles on the couch.

Lots of music...everyone was taking turns playing Sophie's guitar.

Silly Sophie!
Family and friends...

Mmmmm...yummy food!
Here's Scott - mixing us all up some drinks...

And no - the ketchup was NOT put in the drinks! MMmm-Margaritas!

I think drinking may have prompted this picture of Seth, Darcy and Scott!

Here's the gang out in the back field, setting up the fireworks for later on.

little Seth demonstrates what will happen once they are lit!

Isn't he the cutest!
And who could resist Adam's new puppy, Chewy? AWWwwwww look at that face!

And what an ending to the night - the fireworks were spectacular! Thanks Seth and Darcy for hosting a wonderful 4th of July party!

Totally exhausted tonight - I had a bit of a headache this morning from all the festivities, so I was pretty slow to get going today. Hank and I did manage to get out for couple hours in the kayaks. It was a gorgeous day, and I got some nice photos out on the pond. Check back soon!

Hi Jewel,

Thank you for the compliment!

These were all taken with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi and Tamron 28-75mm F 2.8 lens.
