On July 3rd, we went out to a friends' home in Illinois for a Independence Day gathering! Again, 'twas a beautiful day for which we were quite grateful!
We saw this hair idea on you-know-where and of course Jessica accomplished it on Katia's locks with no trouble at all! It's a star.
these two! :)
The men gave some talks and read the Declaration of Independence
Lydia ponders patriotic thoughts
you're on camera! (a common enough occurrence in our house!)
+J. Andrew Wong somehow, I really like this picture! It's fascinating. Elodie took it.
Time for a picnic lunch supper thing!
I made these cold calzone thingys.
Inside was a savory, perfect chicken filling. They were downed with the eater's choice of ketchup or mayonnaise and were accompanied by salad and fruit.
A creepy ad for mayonnaise, apparently
An ad for....paper bowls? (not in keeping with my character- I despise those bowls)
and naptime :)
Country boy! :) I am quite fond of this picture and what it would portray if this little fellow lived here! :)
This little girl.... ;)
When our appetites were satisfied, it was time to work it all off with a little activity...
Getting ready for the.... 3 (yes, that's correct)-legged races! But if I remember aright, the above picture is proof that these ambitious young ladies attempted a 6 (or was it more- you decide)-legged...walk. By the way, it was delightful getting to meet all you girls! :)
so very lovely!
(picture from Andrew's post...I really like this photo of Ellie and Elodie!)
they look exactly like Piglet jumping (meaning, they look like Piglet when he jumps or rather hops)
Jason didn't resemble Piglet.... ;) He was so fun to watch!
This is funny:
(this is where the parents dropped off all their unruly children ;P )
This is quite an interesting picture considering there is no ball in sight!
(another picture borrowed from Andrew's blog- do check his post out for yourself!)
Ah the details! Twinkle lights on a summer evening....beautiful!
Thanks for stopping by again! Do visit the post about this event on Andrew's blog for more pictures!
Oh, and the evening ended thus.... :)
