This weekend was truly lovely...the kind that makes you glad to be alive. The weather was picture perfect. As if someone knew we wanted to have a pool party. So we did! All the grandparents gathered at the Snitgen's for our traditional 4th of July pool party and eat-a-thon. We kept things simple this year, dogs & brats, a few salads. Pie. Lots of pie. Pie from Grand Traverse Pie Company. If I ever doubted Bart loved me, I know he does now!
This is the response to "Give me a nice smile!"
Evan & Hans, my in-laws puppy.
Bart bought this ginormous beach ball and the kids had a great time trying to land on top of it. Even a few of the men tried it. I'm smarter than that. Especially when there is a camera lurking nearby. Thank you, NBC and 'WIPEOUT' for the gut busting laughs.
Emma & Grammy Cozy
Evan and sparkler. Bart bought a small box of fireworks, and they were totally underwhelming but fun for the kids. I think every year they get smaller and smaller. Fire, good!
The rest of the weekend was spent doing yard work and more yard work and a little painting of Emma's room. We got the first coat on, but it totally needs another coat. Phooey.
Hope you had a good weekend!
