I really enjoy the 4th of July. I like the BBQing and the games and the whole patriotic thing. The American Revolution is one of my favorite parts of American history and I've done research on it here and there ever since 10th grade when I decided to write a book about a spy in that time-frame. That book is still not done (And I sometimes wonder if it ever shall be!) but I have a definate fondness for the 1700's. *Ehem*....Anyway.
I felt more WWII in my choice of clothing though. I think it was the Captain America earrings that did it. I planned my whole outfit out around them. *Grin* They are my favorite earrings for the now. What can I say? They are cool.
We talked and lounged. Quite honestly, it was rather too hot to do any real moving. So lounging it was.
Once things cooled down we played some random games. There was a bit of badminton.
But then we destroyed the only birdie we had and we moved on to other things.
(Which I am rubbish at.:)
And other games that we didn't take pictures of.
Drank water from the hose.
Oh, don't mind me. I'm just air guitaring--well I guess it's more air banjo, really.
Doing my best impersonation of this:
It's only 28 seconds long. Watch it. Seriously.
Then there are the watermelon pictures. So...They are hilarious. *Nods* Let's just hope my family doesn't kill me for showing y'all. But they are too funny not to show!
Things really got fun that night when the sun started going down and we started a fire, drank coffee, made s'mores, told stories and at the end of the night, sang the national anthem.
Oh look! Stars!
That's all I've got. It was just a really fun day.
