After the Fourth of July Celebration Saturday Night

Hamburgers and hotdogs, some grilled chicken breasts. Redskinned potatoes and green beans, tomato and fresh mozzarella salad.  Sparklers. One guest brought a margarita machine and some shrimp to grill- there were glass bottles of coca-cola with cane sugar and cupcakes decorated with flags.  A fire in the firepit. Water balloons and squirt guns.  Glow in the dark necklaces.  Seventeen kids and their parents.  Three grandparents. Steve drove in from Pittsburgh. Perfect summer weather. I practiced family photography with each family in the back yard. Lots of red white and blue.  I planned to post the cupcakes in the cupcake display stand Joanne sent from Omaha but Jack, exhausted won out!

Fourth of July cookout.
Jack fell asleep watching a movie his dad had put in- Michael groggy but still hanging in there, watching.
