Fourth of July 2009

Most of the pictures I took yesterday have other people's children in them and I don't post those here without the parent's permission so here are a few I can post.

Before we left for the party. Obligatory picture on the porch.

It was a block party so several streets were blocked off and the kids could roam freely without worrying about cars.

Joe and my good friend Carla. We have been friends for 26 years! Her family had the block party that we attended. Thanks Carla! We Had a great time!

This is Lilly. She is such a sweet doggie. She is a rescue that Carla found wandering the street(in heat!). Carla has gotten her fixed and now they are looking for a good home for her. She really is so sweet. Potty trained, not barky, loves kids. She loves to be carried around in a purse! Last time I visited Carla I put her in my bag(pretending to take her home. Joe put the kibosh on that). On Saturday I brought the same bag and she tried to climb into it! SO cute!

She is really tiny and she's done growing. Here is Joe trying to give you an idea of how small she is. So if you are in the Orange County/Los Angeles area, Lilly is looking for a home!

We headed home to watch the fireworks outside our house, like we do every year.

I took a few shot of the fireworks with my point and shoot camera. Some day I would love to have a nice camera that takes amazing photos of fireworks. For now, these will do.

We had a great Fourth!

Don't Forget to enter my Give Away!!

Looks like a great party!!! I hope it wasn't too hot!
If we lived closer I would so want that doggy. It made my heart ache a little for missing Frodo.
