July 4th was originally slated to be the first annual “Sac” Olympics. For months we have been thinking up games for the adults…oh yeah and the kids (because it is all about the kids right)… but when it came time to really sit down and plan…we all decided we were just too worn out to make this into a formal gathering with events…maybe next year…which means no one can move! I think the end result was just as fun. We had the slip and slide, unbreakable water ballons…which may or may not have caused some permanent damage ( I know my neck is still healing…thanks Adam!), a “snowball” fight and illegal fireworks…who/what?? I mean some hooligans from down the street were shooting off fireworks. Without further ado…enjoy!!!
Cade getting his game face on!
Reece giving me the…oh great camera time face:(
That frown quickly turned upside down after a few trips down the slip and slide…he loved it!
Perhaps a little too much. LOL
Jacob - post knock out, pre- bee sting.
Meggie took this shot- great pics Meggie! She also took the next one!
Speaking of Meggie…here she is in her lovely dollar tree shower cap…purchased by yours truly. I was so excited about this shower cap only to find out that she did not recently have her “hair did”…so she was not worried about it “bleeding”. You win some, you lose some.
Bill a first timer! And visitor in from MD! He’s saaaaaaaffffffe!
Look at that determination. Go Justin! The guys are always trying to see who can make the longest run down the slip and slide…pretty soon they are going to slide right out into the street.
Even Big Vern got in on the action! Go Big Vern!!!
Oh yeah- they got me on this one…mud on the camera!! Look at Justin though, totally worth it. LOLOL
Don’t ask, don’t tell.
John- The Slip N Slide trickmaster.
No guts, no glory! Brian also a first timer! Trying to break the record. I have no idea who made the longest run…so I guess they all won.
This is how most of us cleaned off.
Noah enjoying the ride!
Apparently Noah said something hilarious.
Cade getting ready to pelt me with snowballs.
Mindy getting pelted with snowballs!
Big vern please don’t throw anymore snowballs at the children…totally kidding! No children were harmed during the snowball fight.
Get him Beth!!
Time to pay the piper Beth!
Suzanne about to take West down!
B. Jammin enjoyed the fight…safe in his mother’s arms.
Brynna also enjoyed the snowball fight!
Until next year. Happy 4th!!!
