Firework fun and a beautiful sunset.

It was a nice Fourth of July and a fairly quiet week-end. I grilled and cooked most of the day on friday. I did have my potatoe salad and deviled eggs made on thursday night so that helped alot. Mom and Dad came down at noon and I cooked out some hamburgers for us. Here's sweet Mom waiting on the burgers to cook.

My poor sweet hubby stayed at the other house all week-end so he could get some more work done on it for the long week-end. So my son and daughter and a few of my son's friends came up and spent the night with me. I cooked out burgers and hot dogs for them again in the evening and we shot some fireworks.
Thats my son in the middle with the brown shirt on.

There was a beautiful sunset that night too due to some rain clouds that were coming in.
I had my camera on my tripod to try to get some night time firework shots but we kept having off and on rain showers so I didn't want to leave it outside in the moisture. Oh well, maybe next year. The rest of the week-end has been fairly quiet. Hubby will be home this afternoon and I will probably mow the grass. I am going to try to take some pictures of my baby sparrows and Mommy and Daddy sparrows that have a nest in a basket on my deck. I hope every one has had a wonderful holiday week-end. Please check out my Friend Jessica's slide show that she did of the pictures she took at Nashville's Fourth of July Fireworks display, its amazing!!!!

Looks as if you had a very nice day with family and friends....just what a holiday should be. Love that sunset! Too bad about the rain spoiling your chance to get fireworks photos but there's always next year.

Your mom looks good.

It's good to see Ms. Lottie looking so good and able to come to your house. Too bad your hubby couldn't be there. Hope you're able to sell your old house soon.
