Land of the free, home of the brave...

Did you have a fun 4th of July?
We did.
In fact, I know that years from now we will be saying:
"Remember that 4th of July when Ron and Ryann
and Tyler were here? Yeah...that was a fun one..."
It was that kind of day.

  
 
 
 
 
 

 

  Little flags everywhere
My brother {Ron} playing guitar {Rinda's Summer Photography Scavenger Hunt item #7" - Someone playing a musical instrument"}
My SIL {Ryann} playing cards
My girl C {also item #7 for Rinda...}
Sliders on the grill {thanks, Doug!}
My nephew {Tyler}  helping me with a photography trick*
Carrie {who actually figured out the photography trick*}
"R" is for Ron {and Ryann}
Carrie's signature, written backwards from where she stood, looks very similar to her real-life signature.
Me. :o)  {sunflower plants in lower left corner}
Love.

* sparklers + manual focus + f22 + ISO400 + shutter open for 8 seconds = cool photograph trick

Catching up on all your recent posts today Deb. I love the "border" and turtle habitat post, but this one's my favorite. I adore the picture of C. with her guitar. She looks so beautiful!
And what great sparkler tricks. You'll have to share how you did it one day.
