It's the 4th of July!

(Thank you, Dawn, for providing the beautiful graphic card!!)
Hope everyone is having a grand 'ole time celebrating Independance Day, which also happens to be one of Johnny's favorite movies~but that's off the subject. We went up to the country and had pork with all the trimmings at Alton's and there was a slew of folks there! Started off with a few, when I realized how many were there my headache began, speech became a problem, and I came home. It was fun while there, though! John was even able to stay a little bit before leaving for work. I went by and picked up Deborah and Lorenzo and they had a blast as well. Lorenzo grew up in Los Angeles and had never seen a donkey. Alton has four, so snapshots were taken to document this historic sighting {insert bunches of winks here}. He was hoping to see a cow and we did see a calf, in the road of all places!, as we drove home. Here's some pics from the day~
I am so totally in love with this man and cannot wait for him to retire and I can have him home all the time. So, well, when he's not hunting or fishing.

This one is a bit fuzzy. I really need to make an appointment to get my eyes checked. It looks perfectly clear when I look at the viewfinder. But somewhere between there and here, it becomes fuzzy. Surely it's not MY eyes.

Jackie Martin grew up with Johnny in Slapout and I taught second grade with her. It was so good to see her and spend some time with her today. On the right is John's niece, Kim Barnes Holt. It was right after this snapshot that I began to realize just how many people were there!



I went to Jen's homepage and here are some cuties from there! She has many more, so check them out! What better way to end a 4th of July than with some snapshots of family, especially when they're grandbabies!! There are several funnies on Jen's site that brought smiles to my face. In one, Ian is trying to get Noah out of the road. I also liked the snapshot Jenny got of the old gin.
God bless America!
