Fourth Of July Party

We spent the holiday at our son and daughter-in-law’s annual Fourth Of July party.  They had about 30 people attend, with about half of those being children. The kids had a ball on the giant water slide they set up in the back yard while the adults enjoyed a nice time outside. There was lots of food,  including about fifteen different desserts. I had to try a bite of each dessert and boy did I have a sugar headache the next day.  I really should know better…but it was so good!  Of course we had to bring some leftovers home.


I’ll show more of their home in a later post.

At 9:00 PM we all headed to the second floor terrace for fireworks. They have absolutely the best place in Richmond to watch the show! The fireworks are sponsored by the city and set off in the park about 200 yards from their home.  It feels like you can reach out and touch them. I can’t even describe how spectacular this is.

This is our grandson (white shirt) and a friend watching the show.  And…….here are are the fireworks!

    Sounds and looks like you had perfect seats at a spectacular fireworks show. Seeing your Grandson and his friend watching is adorable. It's as fun watching the kids as it is the show itself!
