July 4th, 2008

My husband's side of the family always get together at his sister and bil's house. Kathi and Eddie host the 4th party because they have a swimming pool and because their subdivision is pretty flat and new (trees aren't too high yet) which allows us to see fireworks all around us. We usually have hash (Stan makes a good hash) or hot dogs/hamburgers. But this year, Stan smoked Boston Butt roasts and shredded them for sandwiches and he made 4 beer can chickens on the smoker grill. We had cole slaw, potato salad, baked beans, peach cobbler, blueberry pie, chocolate cake, etc. Whewee, we ate 'til we were stuffed!

Peggy, Meg and were the representatives from the older generation there this year. We missed Peggy's sister and bil. Our generation was represented by Stan, myself, Kenny, Anna, Ronnie, Kathi, Eddie, Angie and Kathy. We missed Donnie and Elaine. Elaine had to stay home with her dogs because of the fireworks. The younger generation (from 23 yrs old to 5 yrs old) were represented by Katie (and her boyfriend, Dustin), Evans (and his fiance, Chelsea), Logan (the 5 yr old), Luke (and his fiance, Hannah), and Kathy's daughter. We missed Joshua, Jacob, Aaron and Jenny (and her husband, Kyle).

We had a great time together as usual! I stayed up late Thursday and Friday night and I paid for it the whole weekend but it was worth it! I've been in bed Friday, Saturday and Sunday except for those two "parties", but it was worth it and I thank God that we have such a close family and such good times together.

All the athletic ones played volleyball (that let's me out! LOL!). Girls against boys!




Logan sticks to Chelsea like glue. He loves her and she's very good with him. She let him tag along with her in the volleyball game.
