4th of July Weekend

Happy 4th Everyone!

It has been a great weekend around here.  While we are still on Baby-Watch (waiting), a couple of invites to BBQ’s turned up, so it has been brisket, burgers and beer most of the weekend so far!  Plus two long bike rides (the longest of the season), and tomorrow we’re thinking of heading down to the river and seeing how we do on their bike trails.  Later on Monday (the 4th), have a few family over for more burgers and beer.  Holidays as they should be spent!

Today we were over at another foreigner’s house – Brett, who is from Australia and has a similar get-together every year.  He and his wife have a new baby.  You know what that means!  Pam took her camera.

But the most fun of the evening was watching the kids play … wading pools were set up …

A trampoline was seeing heavy duty action … (how’s this for stop action?)

But the hit of the evening was the dirt pile.  With a wagon found from somewhere.  Oh yes, this was entertainment.

A friend and his new hot girlfriend.  There has to be more to this story.

And you-know-who.

And an attempt at low light action.  Brett has a workshop set up in the backyard where his band gets together and plays.  Definitely a low light situation in there tonight …

Will have to look at the EXIF data and see what I did to get this pic.  I tried several settings and of course, do NOT remember.  Definitely didn’t want to use a flash which would mess with the ambience of the workshop/studio.

Anyway, hope to be posting baby news soon!

Merry America to everyone!   Boom!  Boom!  Oooh!  Ahhh!

Just stopped back by to see if there were any alerts. I think you have the entire blog family on baby alert. That's good because we are all surely praying for your joy.

Carmy: Nope, no July 4 baby!

Moi: Oh, girl. You have no idea. I know facts that I can't share.

Troll: Dirt piles sound perfect for Trolls ... maybe you can acquire one for under the bridge.

Buzzy: Next eagle scout project: Pool skimming.

Aunty: No baby yet! Hopefully we are on the countdown!

Fishy: Yep, no baby yet. You know I'll be blogging the event ... maybe in real time! Ha.
