Scenes From The 4th

The little girls went to the Ventura Street Fair

while Pop and I watched a brush fire on the Conejo Grade. We had gone to the grocery store - no smoke - 

and returned less than 30 minutes later to this. 

Fortunately, the wind was blowing it away from us into an unpopulated area.

Pop's redneck version of cornhole was a hit - 

or actually a (lot of) miss(es).

The beanbags all weighed different amounts (oops, my bad 😛) making it just that extra little bit challenging. 

Jac was not impressed but Leia and Leanne loved it.


a movie (Independence Day II, of course),

 Leia was singing songs to a very tired Jac. So sweet. 

several rounds 

of pass the baby,

and it was finally time for fireworks.

We weren't sure what Jac's reaction would be to all the noise - 

especially when the idiots patriotic individuals one street over started setting off BIG boomers - 

but she handled it like a trooper.

And the Colorado branch watched fireworks from the lake. Looks like heaven.

Happy 4th, y'all!
