Fourth of July Fun

What are they looking at?

Just some of the 16 cousins.


I am starting to look forward to the 4th of July every year. Celebrating our freedom as a country is great and never to be taken lightly! Add family, fun, fireworks and food to the mix and you have great memories to last a lifetime.
On Roque's side of the family there are 16 kids from 17 months to 16 years of age. There is also a house full of uncles and aunties to answer to. The islander food is great. The mood is festive and light.
The fireworks can be seen from the front yard as they are less than half a mile away. Everyone brings their folding or camping chairs and blankets. Then we sit back and enjoy the show in the comfort of Grandma's front yard. It is nice not to fight the crowds and still see such a great display of fireworks.
