4th Of July

Posted Sunday, August 21, 2011, at 4:12 PM


For about 20 years, I've had a 4th Of July BBQ.  Though we were in Cascade, we wanted to stick with tradition, so we came home on July 3rd and met up with whoever came.  It's different people every year, and there was no way to let everyone know that we wouldn't be there...if we decided NOT to come.  So, easier to just come. 

I'm very glad we did.... it was great seeing those that came, and I love watching the kids play together...and then have their sparklers. 

Here we are gathering

Ginny was about 10 when she joined my 4-H club.  It is so hard to imagine that she's grown and has 2 children of her own.  I love that Ginny and Katie are still such good friends.

My friend Linda and daughter Tawnie.  I remember when Linda did the fireworks and Tawnie just got sparklers.  Now Tawnie is in charge of bigger stuff.  Amazing

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
