Happy Pink Saturday and Happy 4th of July everyone. You will have to look hard to find some pink in this post I am afraid. I want to thank Beverly of How Sweet The Sound for making this possible. Please be sure to check her blog for the list of participants this week. Our family is celebrating this wonderful holiday together one day early, so my post this week gives credit to that. Please join us for lots of fun and gratitude to all those that made it possible so we as a nation can be free.
Getting ready to have the family over for a pool party and bar b que. Look what I found! I love these.

These are the cutest plates that I have seen in a long time. Love that flag!!

I just love these paper plates. So perfect for the 4th celebration

You just have to have cupcakes, red, white and blue, yummy

We all shared a wonderful day of family, food and lots of fun.

Allie's sister baby Jenna, all ready for the festivities to begin.

Allie loves the water and had lots of fun.

Grandpa with grandson Kyler

It's all about having fun with our son Tim....it was a great time for all.

Our beautiful daughter Kirstin and grandson, Jack, what a cutie patootie he is!

Kyler, one of my sweet grandsons. This picture says it all, Happy 4th Of July everyone. God Bless America and a special heart felt thankyou to all that made our freedom possible. God Bless You!!

Aaawwww what fun you guys have. It is nice to have this day to celebrate - Independence Day. Not everybody has such opportunities to have. it's also a nice day to remember the forefathers who fought for it, and to the present ones too who have served the country unconditionally.

Happy Pink Saturday!
