Our Fourth of July

We had two new recruits for shucking corn this year!


The day's menu consisted of  watermelon, kid-shucked corn-on-the-cob (which is way better than adult-shucked corn-on-the-cob, in case you were wondering), barbecue chicken, baked beans, and flag cake.  There may also have been root beer floats made from the Root Beer Party Keg from Costco.  
I can neither confirm nor deny this. 


Of course, the slippy slide and blow up pool were out and the kids played in it most of the day.


Then we had a few fireworks to watch.

I can't believe I let my kids hold fire.   


It was a late night for my normally-early-to-bedders.


Sophie even let it slip that she was "pretty tired, Grandma".  


But it was a special night.  And we all slept in the next morning... 


If you call 7 am on the dot sleeping in. 


And just for the record, I don't.
(Yawn.)

Either do I! But it looks like it was worth it!

Yes, for the record, I don't either! :) It looks like such a fun day!
By the way, somebody-else-altogether-shucked-corn is pretty good, too. heehee (And the germaphobe in me just doesn't think about the "somebody else" part, AT ALL!)
