My Mom Always Plans a Big Fourth of July Celebration
That We usually try to make the Trek back Home for.
this Year We got to Spend a Weekend There,
for all the Fun!
First Thing the Kids did when we Crawled out of the Car:
Go to Grandpa's Garden!
When We went Running the Next Morning,
We had some Spectators!
And This was the View:
This is the Area,
where I grew up,
and We Always Love to
Head out of the Concrete Jungle
Return to Here,
to Get Our Small Town,
also makes plans to keep everyone busy.
This Years Projects:
Duct Tape Crafts for the Kids,
And a Ladies' Craft for the Women:
There is always a round of Pinata Soccer,
and an Obstacle Course,
and New this Year?
A Zip Line
The Kids Probably Wore that Thing OUT!
Also New to the Scene,
Iron Chef Lunch Activity.
All the Adults were summoned to the Front Room,
Divided into teams of 4,
Given a Dinner Course
(Main, Side, Salad, Dessert)
and Last but Not least,
the Secret Ingredient: Pineapple.
It was fun to see Everyone Divide and Conquer!
Just before Lunch,
My Mom did a Rousing Rendition
of a Cute Story
"Betty and the Bar"
for all the Grandkids!
She did Awesome!
It's always Wonderful to Go back Home,
and Eat Yummy Food,
Stay up Way too Late Visiting,
and be Surrounded by Family and the Country Life!
It Does Something Happy to Our Hearts!
