This is how we do it


A photo essay of our Fourth of July holiday weekend.




















(scrambling to find the red, white or blue peanuts dropped from the plane)







And the next day we did this . . .

You definitely do it more athletically than I do it! :) Fireworks at the beach was fun, but during the day all I wanted to do is stand under an air conditioning vent! Looks like you all had a great time.

How fun! I want to go kayaking so bad! I've been once and had a blast!

Amber said...

That looks like a great day. I hope the girls enjoyed it. Well done getting that photo of a big smile between all those bodies! That can't have been easy!

We spent the day packing and taking my daughter to GS Camp, then had a cookout and fireworks... today we went canoeing!

Sweet! Looks like a great time was had by all. I'm curious about the peanut drop. If you find one of the color ones, does it mean anything special? Why peanuts? Thanks for sharing!

I spent mine sewing together two blocks from a LQS BOM and a quilt top for my FIL. Too hot for much else!

What a great photo essay. And how great to have your daughter running a race!
I am trying a little something new on my blog if you would like to drop by. No pressure, just an idea I had. :o)

Love the way that most of the people in the front row of the race were blokes. Your family is in the third row I see :-)
I haven't worked out the American mania for scattering lollies (candy) or nuts or other edibles on the ground and then eating it, given the other mania for hygiene. (That is my issue not yours!)
I'd love to go kayaking on a nice river or lake. So lovely!

What an exciting weekend you had! I love the look of determination on her face as she runs.
