4th of July...snapshots

OK, so this is a little late.  Here are some of the highlights.

Parade in the morning

Only in Texas...

Later in the day we went down to the park where friends were competing in the
BBQ Ribs and Chili Contest. 
We had a blast!

This was their BBQ/Smoker setup.
This trailer was crazy!
2 huge grills/smokers.
Prep space.

A very cool sink setup.

What was so nice was that the grills were up and away from all the kids running around.

Excellent food!  These guys cooked for 2 days. 
 They started the brisket at 11 pm on July 3rd.
We had it for lunch on the 4th.

Cowgirl Up!

I wish you could smell what a Cook-Off smells like.

Ummm....deconstructed deer...I mean Super Deer!

Did I mention it was HOT!
High 90's.
So we gathered up the kids and went back to the house for a dip in the pool, some shade and cold refreshments.
We live 5 houses away from the park.

As the sun started to go down, people started to gather in anticipation of the Fireworks.
They also enjoyed the Carnival which sets up right here in the park.

The Fireworks were amazing
and a good time was had by all.

For Matry it was a very long day.
I think she really enjoyed it though.

  1. What an adorable picture for your banner! Such a cute little baby body!
    We have a great 4th in N NV, too. We have a Veteran's parade. Guess who forgot to bring her camera to Virginia City for it? Duh!
    Looks like you had a wonderful day.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
