Our 4th!

We hope everyone had a great 4th of July. It rained on and off here, but we still had a nice day.
We went to a family picnic at Chris's parents house. There were 17 of us there. Everyone brought a dish to pass. We had hot dogs, Italian sausage, venison sausage, potato salad, coleslaw, a fruit bowl, a vegi platter, chicken wing dip, candy apple jello and quite a few other things. There was so much food!!!

After dinner we had cherry cake for dessert.

We even had live entertainment. Our niece sang a few original songs for us all. Everyone seemed to have a good time. We came home and relaxed in the evening. Laurie had to work early today, so we didn't go anywhere for fireworks. (we did see some on TV:)

Have a great day!
