July 1 - 4, 2006
|To celebrate our nation's independence, we did
the traditional American thing: a cookout and fireworks. Only we did
We spent the weekend with my parents in Westville, then attended the
annual GHK cookout at Charles Hefner's "Three Wild Turkeys"
|First - scenes from Saturday night in Westville|
|Larry in the foreground, Desi's gang around the table||Larry & Eric solving the problems of the world|
|Desi's friends - with best friend Nancy center stage|
Glenda, me, and Gran (she didn't like the firework fumes)
|Carla and Caitlyn watching the fireworks||She's a whole evening of entertainment in one small package|
|This was Tuesday the 4th outside of Guthrie.
We got a big rain that morning, pretty much the only rain we've had this summer!
|Here we get a demonstration of the hammock in action.
(Or would that be in-action?)
|Christy and Kathy Chen, chatting on the porch. Kathy is a
Chinese girl who just finished her Masters at Harvard and is
going back to China.
| Eric, slaying the fish from his little kayak. If the fish was
bigger it might have pulled him off of there!
| Charles and Ted had some explosives they used
to blow up an old shed. You ignite them by shooting
them. It sounded like this: "crack, crack, BOOM!!!"
|The girls posing with a 'stalker' behind them in the weeds.||Eric with yet another fish.|
|Just a few of the fireworks for the evening.||Charles and Ted monitoring the grill and beer situation.|
|You can actually hear the fish give a sigh of relief.||The guys are giving Kathy a hard time.|
|Eric, fixing the potato gun||Darren's family just got a new puppy - what a sweetheart!|
