So I think lately you’ve probably heard quite a bit about diving. Well… sometimes at our house, when we get on a new kick, it seems like we just go and go and go like the energizer bunny. So anyway, on the 4th of July, we attended the local Dive Club meeting, which just so happened to be a 4th of July party. Sweet! That’s a great way to start and better yet, there was food. So I’d like to take you to our dive club meeting via photos. I’m not going to lie, it reminded me a lot of a Sunday Night Dinner :). Sorry, this again is a photo heavy post. Enjoy!
I absolutely LOVED the plate/napkin holder that Grady & Deb had. Grady couldn’t remember where they found it, but I seriously think it would be easy to recreate… (hint hint hubby)
Wednesday night while we were doing our pool classes for our diving certification, Deb was busy smoking the meat for Thursday night. Oh boy was this good. We had pulled pork and brisket.
D the Man brought his famous chicken.
We had salads galore!
The rest of the sides included stuffed jalapenos, baked beans, corn casserole, green bean casserole and Pita chips with Spinach artichoke dip and Hummus.
Leo got passed around from person to person. He’s 14 weeks old now I overheard them saying.
This is Pete. Pete is awesome! Earlier in the day when we got there, he and another dog were playing catch. Grady told them to stay out of the pool so the dogs were trying to get away with throwing their toys in the pool to retrieve without getting caught. It was hilarious.
John is waiting for any day now his grandchild will be born. He and his wife have their bags packed and are ready to hop on a plane! He’s such a kid magnet though so we all know he’ll be a great grandfather!
One word here – ornery.
The best part was when I went up to take photos, no one questioned me, they just helped me get the food photos! Heck yeah, I guess I’m making my mark on things… lol.
Finally it was time for dessert.
I made the flag cake. Earl made the red, white and blue rice krispies.
This ice cream tastes just like a Wendy’s Frosty.
After we were done eating, Divergirl and hubby wanted to go shoot. JT was in and so was Grady. They asked the Aussie and he was like, I love this country. It’s a good day when you ask if you want to target practice and everyone grabs their guns. lol.
The goat was seriously cracking me up. He wanted to be involved in the fireworks too.
After we were done with the shooting range, we were walking back up to where the rest of the party was happening and saw the goat on top of the horse hay. Silly goat. or smart, maybe….
Finally it was time for the Fireworks display. The real awesome thing was the fact that there were people all around us shooting them off as well so we really got a fabulous show.
This was a GREAT way to spend the 4th!
