Our 4th of July BBQ...On the 5th of July??

My Mom never gets the date right...
Last Year our 4th of July BBQ was on the 6th...

Anyway...I kind of just chilled all morning...
I knew there was something going on cuz
my Mom was running aroung like a nut...
My Dad went outside...
He got that noisy tractor thing out that
makes the grass shorter...
Mom took some towels out of the dryer so
I kept them warm until she folded them...
The house smelled like lots of yummy stuff
so I knew it was almost time for the BBQ...

Are they here yet, Mom???
Yep...Here they are...

Here's Maddy & that cute little boy is Jay...

That guy relaxing in the chair is my human
sister, Chrissy's hubby, John...

We're sooo glad he is here with us this year...
Last year he was far away in Iraq...
This is Emmie...
Maddie & Emmie went in the pool while
Jay found some sticks in the yard...
I waited for crumbs to fall...I wanted to make
sure there wasn't much of a mess for my Mom
to clean up after everybody left...

I sat with Jenny for a while...She had a little
hamburger left over...She shared it with me...

I like Jenny...
Jeff had to go in the pool really quick
when Maddie decided she could swim
without her Life Jacket...

I didn't know Jeff could move that fast...
After that my Dad said pool time was over
& he took the ladder down...

Jay was snoopervising...
Hey, Mom: Everyone is getting their stuff
together...Is the BBQ over??
Can we have another one next weekend??

Thanks for coming to our BBQ...

Hope you had as much fun as I did...

Abby xxxooo

Looks like an amazing good time - and I bet that bit of hamburger tasted delicious! Was the pool water warm, cool, or cold?

Psst.. our mom says THANK YOU from the bottom of her heart for coming by our bloggy and leaving those words of support when we lost Baby Chloe. Mom is still very sad and we are trying our best to cheer her up a little.
