Independance Day BBQ

There were some great moments this 4th. I enjoyed the bratwursts, broccoli salad, Sun Chips, homemade lemonade, and the brownies. It was fun to see the children cover there ears during the fireworks. John and Sam had a particularly hard time with the noise. The firecracker chain (as seen in the last photo) was very exciting.

My favorite part was playing U.S. I.Q.. I bought it years ago at the D.I. for 50 cents. We had only played it once before with the Williams and it was fun to bring it out again. The questions are challenging and I feel like we learn something worth knowing when we play it.

I felt the lack of music that I know I would have received if we would have gone to the reunion. It has been too long since I have sung "Your a Grand Old Flag" and "God Bless America" in a group. Next year I am going to insist that we sing some songs.

Sally -- I loved Clara's cross-braids so much that I copied you and did a couple of my girls' hair that way for church today.
Thanks for the idea:)
