Sixth of July

While some Americans celebrated the Fourth by attending Teabagging parties (which should have been in honor of John Ensign and Mark Sanford this time after they admitted to extramarital teabagging), we spent the day with family celebrating in more traditional ways.

A cookout with ribs, burgers,hot dogs and corn, with potato salad in which the potatoes, onions, peppers and homemade pickles all came from this year's garden followed by kid's entertainment (who entertained who?) and fireworks. Oh, and some four-wheeling.

Here's Lola guarding the tire swing.

The littler kids played bust the pinata. Josh was successful. Astute readers will notice that the star is being recycled from an earlier parade. Actually some of the candy was left over from that event as well.

Our fireworks began sort of "light"..

but ended in a "grand finale."

So we missed the Bessemer fireworks this year. I hope that event was as good as it usually was. How was your Fourth? Leave comments in the "comments" section, especially if you went to the Bessemer fireworks.
