4th of July

WARNING: PHOTO HEAVY!!

I think I mentioned last year that the 4th of July is my favorite.. even w/my lil mis-hap on Saturday I was cleaning house & prepping for out annual post-parade BBQ for Monday! I got the important parts done & proud. here are the few shots I captured over the day:
My lil brother Jeff & his girls

our chief of police (who also is our neighbor)

I love this shot of the flags leading the parade.

ALL THOSE WHITE SHIRTS?! High School marching band YES!

SOME grocery store employees in their 'drill formation' .. quite a way to break in a new assistant manager ;)


this is a friend of the family. she re did this tractor for a project @ school






After the parade we headed down to our house for BBQ potluck. OH so much food! cheesy potatoes, green bean casserole, cornbread casserole, texas caviar, veggie tray, crackers, chips, dips, burgers & dogs, 2 pies & a chocolate peanut butter creamy dessert that we snacked on all afternoon!
