Hi my friends and thanks for stopping by.
Despite the fact that we had a fire burning on the mountain just above our home we had a fabulous Fourth of July celebration.
Some families were still evacuated and firefighters were working around the clock. However, we knew that we were in no imminent danger. God bless those firefighters!
For more than ten years we have had a tradition of hosting a 4th of July outdoor breakfast. Hubby was actually the one who suggested it the first time. It was so much fun that we have carried it on every year. Usually we have a lot of family as well as friends. This year with everything going on I didn’t get friends called so it was just family.
Let’s see what was on the menu.
We always cook bacon, sausage, and hash browns. Hubby sets up his camp chef out on the deck and cooks eggs to order any way you like. Each year we try something a little different. This year we made our favorite Pecan French Toast. My sister, Jeanne actually made two pans of it and we devoured it all. I will be sharing this yummy recipe with you when I get back from my get away with friends. Of course we had to serve something red, white, and blue. Nothing better than juicy fruit.
Seems like every year I catch a pic of my BIL, Reas sitting at a table with all kids. Guess he’s just a big kid at heart.
After our bellies are good and full it’s time to “Let The Games Begin”!
We don’t have a pool, (hint, hint, to hubby) so this will have to do.
My son brought a bigger pool also, but I guess I missed getting a pic.
I always have a little something for the grandies. This year it was water guns, bubbles, and a treat.
How cute is this? Grandpa so patiently blowing bubbles for Jack and Saydee. And look how patiently they are waiting to pop them. Oh to be young again!
My handsome grandsons.
And cute grand daughters. The one on the left is my sisters grand daughter.
Do you have a family tradition that you carry on each year? I’d love hearing about it if you do.
Hope you’re having a fun summer!
