Family, food, & fun: Day 169

My three blessings.
Trying for some different shots.
Well, the tops of their heads were supposed to all be touching, but they were getting a little tired of my different pose requests, so I went with it.
I still like it, though.
She's actually a tad taller than me, but I made sure to stand on the higher slope:)
They're glad mom's through with the posed shots.
I can just hear one of them mumbling,
"She's still taking pictures of us, isn't she?"
Hot dogs and the Fourth of July go hand-in-hand.
(Even though it's actually the fifth.)
This is just the hamburger and hot dog table. There was so much more on the other side of the kitchen. Needless to say, I ate way too much!
Get in line.
After eating, the kids got in the pool while the rest of us just hung out storing all our extra calories.
Adam taking a little break on the board.
Which brother is stronger?
Adam and Katie taking another plunge. This one is on a much shorter term:)
Ummm, when did she turn into a woman?
More cake and soda?
May I have your metabolism, please?
On The Fourth of July: Where there's smoke - there's some redneck shooting bottle rockets out of a Coke can.
Our Fourth of July celebration continued on to the fifth of July. We spent the day in Spring City with Adam's new in-laws. (I really don't like the word "in-laws." It seems to have a formal or negative connotation.) We couldn't have asked for a nicer family for Adam to be married into. The McDaniels are very kind and down-to-earth people, and we always enjoy our time with them.
