What The Fourth Of July Looks Like Here

The day started hot and bright.
There were a couple of boats
out early fishing.
MyHero and I worked all morning
setting up for family and friends.

I made a 
Flag Cake
that more than filled the pan.
My daughter, TPot and her
BFF, Miss Tina,
always have fun together.
Who's that behind those
Foster Grants?
(anyone remember those ads)
MamasBoy skipped across
the bay from his place to ours
with his boat to give all the
kids a ride....and do a little
water skiing.
Hey!  How you gonna get
all those people in 
THAT BOAT?
The day got hotter and hotter.
Some didn't seem to mind the heat.
That's our little CJK.
One month old!
Yeah- maybe I should learn
NOT TO TAKE
up the nose pictures, huh?
Quiet with  you!
Do you want to see the baby or not?

Some of you that have 
been following me for a while
remember that 
SweetCheeks had a couple
of  invisible VISABUL friends.
Her BEST VISABUL friend
was Bob.
He did everything with her.
He walked with her and talked
with her and played 
house with her.
We mourned Bob's passing
when he fell down the steps
never to reappear.

But- Wait!
What is THAT I see?
She has  NEW 
BEST FRIEND?
Can it be?
Really?
Well, pictures don't lie....
or do they?

  1. That's one of the best "up the nose" shots that I've ever seen!
    I'm glad you had a super day.

  2. Looks like the perfect family day. It was over 100 degrees in our neck of the woods. Boy, I'm missing our lakeshore breezes from the week before. If my father would have had his bathing suit I think he might have joined the kiddos in our pool too. Your hubby is a sweetie.

  3. Such a fun day. Her new best friend looks like he is enjoying that fine pool.

  4. I would have joined them in the pool myself. You gotta do what you gotta do to keep cool these days. Glad you had a good day!

  5. Diana, I can't believe how fast the baby is growing . I love the picture of Sweetcheeks and her Papaw, too cute. I guess that's one way to stay cool:):) Smiles, Susie

  7. With that hat, an up your nose picture was all you were going to get.
    Papaw is enjoying the pool, it seems, and since Bob's disappearance he'll have to do, I suppose. Poor Bob, falling down the steps like that..hope he wasn't pushed.

  9. Looks like you had a super 4th! Now I would love to know how Sweet Cheeks convinced her Grandpa to get in the pool with her. I'm sure it was a good one.

  11. oh my gosh thats so cute, Papa and Sweet cheeks, thats a keeper!

  12. That SweetCheeks is a smart one. I think her new best friend will benifit her much more than Bob. Just think about it. Invisible friends have invisible wallets and this new guy probably has deeper pockets. He might be able to treat her to an occasional ice cream or something. That girl is thinking!

  13. I don't know how you do it, Diana. You are always doing something. You must be a bundle of energy. That cake is a "chef d'oeuvre". It must have been delicious. Cute picture of SweetCheeks with her grandfather. Looks like you had a wonderful day!

  37. I want to come to your house next 4th of July. That's how I imagine it really should be! By the way, I think that pool looks pretty refreshing on a hot day. That is a frameable pic. Happy 4th - 2 days ago.
