We hosted a 4th of July picnic at our home this year and invited all my family over. It was a perfect evening for eating outside. It was also a perfect evening for a water balloon fight.
I tried a new feature this year – homemade root beer. It was surprisingly easy and tasted just like the kind you buy in frosted mugs at the root beer place. And trust me – even though it looks like witch’s brew – it was really good. In fact we managed to drink 5 gallons of it!
We had a girls area and a boys area for the kids to eat their dinner.
The adults got chairs.
We especially enjoyed our little star spangled girl – Miss Ava Claire.
A water balloon fight was a feature of the evening. Even though the kids became a little over-powered by some of the adults – all had a fun time.
And no matter what anyone says – you will never convince me that boys and girls are not different in every way imaginable.

The girls were doing this:

The 4th of July – what a fun day to celebrate God, country and family.
