MOSAIC MONDAY-FUN ON THE FOURTH!

For Mosaic Monday hosted by our sweet Mary at Little Red House, I am sharing photos of the Fourth of July celebration (no, it's not more red, white and blue decor!)-- swimming, eating, and fireworks, all of which took place at our house. Thank you, Mary, for being such a gracious hostess for this event. Of course, if you are a regular visitor to my blog, you know that every day is mosaic day on my blog! I just "luv" mosaics!





UNDER WATER FUN FOR GRANDS (NEW UNDER WATER CAMERA FUN FOR ADULTS)!






EATING FUN!





SPARKLER FUN!


WATCHING FIREWORKS FUN!



GRANDCHILDREN COVERING EARS FUN!

My grandchildren's dads had fun shooting fireworks under the pretense of entertaining their children, at least one of whom was covering his ears while screaming "I wanna go home"!

I hope everybody had a safe and fun 4th of July celebration!

Yes, our 4th was safe and fun! As I watched my son and son-in-law light fireworks, I was sure it was not going to be safe or fun--Forever the worried mother!


On the Fourth, I accidentally convinced my family that visiting blogs was a good thing! Among the foods I served, were several recipes from Blogville. I served Marinated Tomatoes (recipe from Mid Atlantic Martha), Baked Vidalia Onions (I'm sorry I failed to record whose blog featured this recipe-Please let me know if it was you, so I can give you credit), Strawberry Lemonade (recipe from Lace and Ivy Cottage), and Lemon Cream Berry Trifle (recipe from Kathleen Ellis Lifestyle Design). Since my friend, Susie, emailed me the recipe for Frozen Banana Salad, I kind of included that in the list of recipes I got from my computer! When someone raved about one of the delicious foods, I told them that I got the recipe from the computer. They gained a new appreciation for my blog visiting! Now, when I'm on the computer and they start rolling their eyes, I tell them I'm looking for recipes, and they stop the eye-rolling and smile at me! Thanks ladies. You may have helped me avoid a "computer intervention" by my family!


Be sure to go to Little Red House to see Mary's beautiful 4th of July mosaic, and to find links to all of the fun mosaics in Blogville today. Thank you so much for visiting me. laurie
