Where does the time go???

It is already the end of July! Where is the summer going? We have had a busy month.  Independence Day was so much fun, I love small (think Micro) town celebrations.  We started the day before by making 40lbs of flour into frybread dough for the Indian Taco lunch.

Frybread Dough!

I used a 5 gallon bucket to mix the dough in.  Early the next morning Duztin shot of 4 blank rounds in his black powder pistol (sorry no pics).  The kids didn’t even stir, after the 2nd round I woke them up.  They were happy to get up, they didn’t want to miss it.  We then got ready for the “parade” I had sewn a bunting to go around the wagon and little flags for their bikes, as well as shorts/capris/bibs for the kids to wear.

I didn’t get a good picture of Eva’s race, or of Duztin and I in the 3-legged race.  It was tons of fun though!

We had a wonderful Independence Day!  We made about 135 Indian Tacos, the town put on the taco lunch for cost.  All the inflatables and activities were paid for by Henrieville Town.  It was great to watch the kids all playing together without the usual “ticket $0.50” per time on the inflatables.  Just a nice fun day with our neighbors and their families.
