FLAMINGOS AND THE 4TH OF JULY

The Party was a blast! 
I had fun and enjoyed time spent with friends and family
On the gate 
Welcome!
My Cabin in the woods! I wish!!
This wonderful log cabin home belongs to my friends
Dennis & Terri
Tables ready on the deck
Decorations!  We had Flamingo's everywhere!
Once guests arrived I got busy and took very few photos
I did not get a photo of the amazing food! 
It was just yummy and wonderful.  Lots of 2nd helpings were had!
My children
Ashleigh in red bandana, Blake(SIL married to Sara) and blue tshirt Sara
My wonderful son(in law) Blake, notice the Flamingo in the yard behind him?  Yep my Flamingo came to the party! 
My friend Dennis who cooked the most amazing pork butts!
He and Terri made the most wonderful meal!
Terri managed to avoid my camera!
 I had two of these Margarita's 
They were wonderful but two in one evening was enough!
Enjoying the last moments of the evening
(that is Terri in the chair at the table)
Thanks everyone!  Ya'll come back now! 

Hope Everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!!


Always,
Linda

Wow! What a celebration! I know that you all had a big time...thanks for the nice words about my fireworks photos. We had a great time and I finally got some good shots. Have a great week.

Looks like you had a wonderful time. I would be running from you with the camera, too.

Sounds and looks like a good time.
Happy 4th.

Oh what fun! Looks like everyone had a great time. Right now we're waiting for the rain to stop so we can watch fireworks. Hurricane Alex came up from Texas and is trying to ruin our 4th celebrations. It's been an inside day!

Looks like everyone was in a party mood...love all the flamingos. Our fireworks were canceled tonight due to lots of rain...I am sure there were lots of disappointed kids. They will enjoy them next week, instead.

Troy said...

I wonder... if you fed your margarita to a flamingo, would he have trouble standing on one leg?

Looks like you had lots of fun! We were with you in spirit.

Hey Linda!
What a fun 4th of July party!

Loved seeing your tablescape in the post down below...I must get in gear to find 4th of July decor for next year, when I'm out yard saling. I don't have hardly anything for a red, white and blue patriotic tablescape and I want some, after seeing all of yours :)

I love the finds you came home with recently, in the posts below, (I have a whole set of the Currier and Ives blue in my trunk (well, had I been thinking... that could have been used for 4th of July, lol! I forgot all about that). The American dinnerware made by Sebring in the Fortune pattern is so pretty...I have never seen that pattern before.
It's been such fun catching up on your posts...
Hope you have a great week!
Big Hugs,
Queenie

Looks like a blast! Love the margarita glasses, they look to be about the same size as the swimming pool. Two would be enough.
