Th 4th of July is always celebrated at my sister’s home and every year we have a few different faces to help us celebrate Independence Day.  It was a beautiful day and since my sister has a pool we started it as early as possible.1025141155a (1)My sister’s pool is not very large but it is big enough to hold this motley crew.25946_10200404651822568_1858031208_n (1)The best way to celebrate Independence day is by a pool and with a fun group of chaps.IMG_4827 (1)Jumping off the edge into the pool is one of my grand kids favorite things to do.28721f4ecd0bde754187d3ce43f6eb79Even Richie, my sister’s dog, wanted to be apart of  the pool action.  Sometimes Richie does just jump in the pool but this time he just hung around the edge.25946_10200404651822568_1858031208_nAfter the pool we all gathered around the table to enjoy some appetizing appetizers that our friend Joanne made.  262355_4452412749312_739509762_nOh, let me not forget to mention the margaritas my sister blended up…PERFECT!0090505-rect_full142224__nightmare_l
