Happy late fourth of July!

Wow, has this seemed like a long holiday! Ours started on the third and we are finally winding it down. Our little town has quite the celebration the day before the fourth. I took all three kids down to the park on the water about 4 in the afternoon and we got home about midnight. There was entertainment, and exotic animal show ( we petted pythons) food vendors and those big bouncy things you jump in for the kids. After dark the fireworks show started and we all enjoyed it....On the fourth itself, we had our own picnic and bbq and I cooked off and on almost all day and then about 7 we went out in the boat and pulled crab pots....We hit the score on the dungeness...Actually came home with 39 crab..We cooked them outside while the kids lit off their own fireworks . Then the last few days we have done some visiting with friends and running around....Not much in the art or thread department happening but a lot of good food and memories!

Lopks like you had a blast! How wonderful to be able to get your own fresh crabs! I wouldn't have a clue of what to do with them, but I would love to eat them!:-)

Thanks for entering my giveaway! Good Luck! Lori

MMMMMmmm! I had some kind of crabs when we visited my ex-husbands relatives in Maryland ages ago. They were so good with corn on the cob. I'm getting hungry now!! It sounds like you are really adjusting well to having the grandkids with you full time. It seems like you all are having a wonderful time! I couldn't have even got near a python though. Gross!!! I am scared to death of snakes!!

Talk to you later!! Oh, I do have 1 little girl made for you and I goofed on the other one and got frustrated, but I'll finish it up tonight.
