This is not even half of the amazing spread of delicious food!
I had fun making festive desserts.

|American flag brownies|
The weather was so perfect so we enjoyed most of the day outdoors.

At the park we set up our chairs to chat and listen to the band. It was a very nice family time. Tom and I attempted some photos but he wasn't too cooperative...shocking, right?!
|Tom...always the comedian|
|Tom...doing his best Weekend at Bernie's impression|
|With enough persistence and whining I got a good picture|
Tom has been having a blast with his new GoPro. Below are pictures and video he snapped of the crew and the park.

Saturday morning we woke up early to head out for a night of camping at our friend's property. We arrived around 10 am and were ready to hang out and party for the day. Although we barely got in the water and never got any sunshine we had a great time with some of our second family. Tom even got the opportunity to drive the tractor for his first time. AGAIN...he's always a compliant photo subject.
I was always too chilly to get into the water but Tom and Paul had a good time.
Great holiday weekend filled with family and friends. We are feeling truly happy and blessed and SHOCKED the Fourth of July has already come and gone. How is this summer going so dang quickly?
