Fun Day!!

For the past 5 years or so, we've hosted a 4th of July celebration at our home. Every year it seems to get bigger and better! This year was no exception. Clint said he thinks this was the best time yet. I like hosting parties, but it is a lot of work. All the cleaning and prep is time consuming. (Plus the cleaning up afterwards!) Anyway, it definitely WAS a great day. It was so nice talking with everyone. Good friends and lots of yummy food. The food must have been really good because we went through 80 paper plates. Our first guests arrived about 10:30am and the last left after 7pm!! Talk about an all day party!! Some of the kids still protested and didn't want to leave. There was one incident with too many kids in the pool and Valerie somehow ended up underwater. She was fine, just a little scared. Both my girls got a little sunburned. I am so meticulous about sunscreen on them but it was so hectic that I only put it on them once. We haven't seen the sun in a while so I guess both Clint and I kind of forgot to re-apply. Oops.


  1. What a great day! Wish we would have been in LA that weekend! Happy 4th!
