4th of July Pool Party

We decided to open up our pool for a party on the 4th!! We invited about 50 people, and about 30 ended up coming! It was so fun to see the pool full of people! It held so many more people than we ever imagined.

It was the hottest day ever...whew! The majority of people relaxed and played in the pool, and a handful preferred the shade. Overall though, everyone seemed to have a great time!

Everyone brought some food to share -- a snack or a side dish or a dessert. We provided the BBQ meats and the sangria! We had sausage, chicken and brisket; lots of different chips and dips; steamed broccoli; lots of fruits and dips; a crockpot of beans; green beans; fruity pebbles treats; cookies; cobbler; strawberry lemon bars. It was all so tasty!! And I made a pretty tasty sangria! And the beer was plentiful (it was BYOB)...

We played some yard games once the sun started going down...and once it got dark, some of the guys shot off some fireworks while we sat on the deck watching...and then a few people even took a late night swim! The last party-goers left around 11:45 or so...and we did a bit of clean up before crashing into bed...

Sangria made with two different Baber Cellars wines, Sprite, oranges, limes, and green apple
Shelby with her sweet new baby Emery -- she was so festive!
Mimi quite enjoyed herself...she had some Samuel Adams and even got in her suit for a bit
My bestie Kim loooooves the babies...she arrived and made a
beeline straight to get that baby! And she held her forever!
Victor brought their teeny tiny new Yorkie puppy Beau!!
He was soooo precious! He weighed about 1.5 pounds!
Kim's son Brandon killed it on the flip!
Me and Alex took on Kim and Brandon in Cornhole -- I love yard games!
Photobomb :)
Me and my pretty freckle buddy!!

What a wonderful way to celebrate the 4th!! Until next year!
