Fourth of July Celebrations

No wonder why I scare small children ... if you were a baby, would you want to play and clap along with this lady or would it send you screaming? This picture is taken from the viewpoint of one of the babies we hung out with today (with Berilac's help of course,) as we "celebrated" Fourth of July!!

One would think that we actually celebrate our UK emancipation, but instead we were truly celebrating our mid-week day off! Notice that nobody in this picture is wearing a red, white, & blue flag shirt ... nor did we take any time to discuss the meaning of the day. Instead we gathered with a group of friends and walked down to the local park for the 26th annual Chili Cook Off!

Here are the ten of us awaiting the chili goodness. The gig was to get in for free then pay one dollar per 3 oz taste. I think on average we had about 5 tastes each. We enjoyed sitting and talking in the shade with these three couples and two adorable babies.

How much fun did we have playing with my old-lady hat! These girls are either learning early the value of protecting themselves from the sun or they were bored with their plastic toys! Regardless, they were enjoying themselves!

Happy 4th to you and yours!
