Pictures of our 4th Celebration

For the last five years or so, the girls and I have spent the 4th of July at a friends house.  Every year, they have a neighborhood block party!  It includes....tons of food, a wagon parade, dancing in the street, a jumpy house for the kids...and a HUGE fireworks display that is quite impressive!  This year, Dan and Nathan joined us (they usually go to another friends house with older kids)!  We had a grand time.  Here are a few of the pictures....

My feeble attempt at patriotic fruit!

I'm such a good mom...feeding her children Cheetos for dinner!


What food group is this?

Looks like tons of fun. How on earth did your friends make the rocket? Too cool!

My reaction is WOW ! Is this a neighborhood celebration, Nancy? I don't believe I've ever been part of something like that. I'm totally impressed...

What a FUN time and an awesome idea (the wagon parade!) WOW! You guys live in a super-fun neighborhood!
Those berries look QUITE tasty!

And I believe the food group is called, "Go-ahead-and-eat-it,-even- though-we-wouldn't-normally,-because- it's-a-party,- we're-having-fun,-and-that-little -bit-won't-kill-ya'".
