as i was thumbing through my photos...
searching for bloggerland inspiration...
i stumbled upon the pictures of our last 4th of july celebration.
for years now, we have traveled very close to home,
to our very favorite spot of summer...
a town so small you can drive through it in about one minute or less!
it's not even a town, it's actually considered a village.
but on the 4th, they knock it out of the park!!!
this quaint, tiny little beach and hillside are crammed with
several thousand people, all ready to celebrate and swim!
of course, for my little man, it's mostly about the swimming!
that goes for my friends girls too...
they bring in the 'blow-ups', which are even more
fun when you're wet!
they even brought in a rock wall last year!
old 'rock-n-roll' tunes from under the pavillion...
elephant ears, fresh-grilled hot dogs, popcorn
and various glow-in-the-dark toys and trinkets!
