This year we did something different for 4th of July. We usually have a big party at Inez's house, but since she is "out of commission" we went to Grandby's house and swam. Greg and Jimmy did their usually BBQ chicken and ribs which was delicious!! It was tons of fun to have the whole family their swimming. Ellie had a blast swimming. In fact she was asking to go in and was not wanting out even though her lips were turning blue and she was shivering!! Ellie didn't get to see fireworks this year though. We were always on the road going home when it was time to shoot them. I think she probably would have been scared of them anyways, so maybe next year when we get to go back to Inez's house she will love fireworks.
