Happy 4th of July!!!

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...




A flowercracker on our deck a Gloriosa Lily
have a Happy 4th everyone!
