4th of July Re-Cap

What better way to celebrate the 4th then with family!  I am a huge family oriented person…So when we got invited by my Uncle Allen to spend time with them I said we’ll be there!
We spent the day just us in the pool…We had our ribs on the 3rd since Zack was off.  I can’t have a 4th of July celebration without BBQ ribs…That is just a southern staple!
That afternoon we went over to Uncle Allen and Aunt Lindas’ and had hamburgers and hotdogs…I took my flag cake which was SO good!  The tip for this recipe is do not follow the Kraft recipe.  Go with the adding fruit directions on the actual Jello box.  The Kraft recipe does NOT give the jello enough time to set up before adding the fruit! 
After we ate we headed to the beach for some fireworks!  They brought their own as well as watching the beaches show at 9pm.

They dug a hole that was HUGE!  I was freaking out a little with all that sand…I can’t stand the stuff!

I thought this was a pretty neat picture…The kids were watching the fireworks…The picture was taken on the “firework” setting on the camera.  The green around their necks and around them are glow sticks.  I liked that! *smiles*
I hope everyone had a great 4th of July!

The sand and ocean are beautiful. You have a couple of good pictures with the fireworks in the background. I never seem to capture that type of picture. Your daughters have lovely red hair!
