Happy 4th of July.....here's some shots
from today and yesterday.....I am sitting
on the deck watching the birds at the
feeder while writing on the lap top..and
it's a gorgeous day!
Yesterday we went to a huge block party out
in Gresham. We had a lot of fun meeting new
people and watching the kids shoot off
fireworks with close adult supervision.
They even had a barrel to put in the used
fireworks with a hose to wet them down.
Quite the safe operation.
In addition to that-there was a real -
honest to goodness garage band-and they were
pretty darn good!
Safety first-all of the kids were really aware of the rules....
While the fireworks were going off-
Mother Nature decided to shoot off some of
her own...an electrical storm with lots of
thunder and lighteneing-and of course RAIN!
We always go to the Lions Pancake Breakfast
at Mary S Young Park....yummy...
Dining with kids and a lot of dogs....
The drink line- coffee, tea, juice and milk...
Cooks at the sausage grill....
and the pancake grill...batter up!!
If there are people around-you can find ...
POLITICIANS....Russell and our neighbors
Tom and Steve talk with Mike Erickson-
a refreshing change from......whoops- no
talking politics on this BLOG-it's FORBIDDEN
one of my rules...
