CCEE1527, 4th of July

Lynn takes over as hostess for the month of July.  For her first challenge, Lynn says that Saturday will be the birthday of America.  Make a card showing how you will celebrate the day (cook outs, parades, fireworks or just at home reading a good book.  I'm sure those of you from other countries can show how you celebrate your country's birthday...will be most interesting!

I will be at my niece's.  She and her husband host a huge picnic....about 100 people come.  The day is ended with a huge fireworks display.  What a wonderful day it is reuniting with family and friends!

Tara Graduates!!!

Oh, I long ago in another life....when this family with a lot of kids moved into a permanent site at our campground.....about 5 sites down from ours!  All I could think of was noise and little kids running all over the place.  We never had permanent little kids in our area.

Boy, was I wrong!!!  One of the best camping families ever!  They were the best campers and the best kids EVAH!  And, we all were proud of this family!  The kids are growing like weeds...two married, one now graduating and the family still flourishes.

Tara is her name and she is one of the sweetest young ladies I have had the pleasure of watching grow.  She is kind, talented and giving.  Her parents have raised her well.

Big hug to Tara as she embarks on a new adventure!
