super fun 4th
Friday, July 05, 2013
I was a bit nervous about playing hostess to a family of four that I didn't know but had been hubby's friends for over 30 years. I planned bbq pork chops,cinnamon apples,deviled eggs,garlic mashed potatoes,agave mint lemon syrup over fruit ,green beans and bbq beans. It was easy to prepare with two crockpots going.
I had such a great time, they were so nice and cheerful. Their 16 yr old son and 7 yr old daughter were great fun. He was a super big brother and played with here in the pool until our grandkids showed up.I've never seen kids squeal with such abondon as they did in this little pool! The round float was the big hit, it spins like a bumper car!
Too bad they were here just one day and hubby left too for a few days. They may swing back by after they go to the keys next week.
I did get a bad headache from the super loud fireworks they bought in Alabama and brought here. Said they spent $300. They were pretty but I could never spend that on fireworks! The neighbors called the cops. The cops said those people call the cops about everything! Real killjoys! But I'm a bit leery of those things myself.
All in all a great time was had by all!
Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th!
