Ok, so our 3rd of July party was funfunfun. D2 graciously agreed to be our party photographer – thanks for all of these pics D2!
Before the party there was a tiny incident: I was making pineapple bacon baked beans, well actually I was starting to make them and opened a can. After getting the lid most of the way open (it’s one of those “safe” can openers that doesn’t leave any sharp edges) I saw what I thought was a teeny ribbon of label sticking out. And without thinking about it (I was talking and laughing with K2 and Catherine) I reached down to rip that piece of label off. Only it wasn’t label, it was a piece of wire the can opener had somehow sheared off and instead of pulling off, the thing sliced through my finger. !!!!! The dang thing wouldn’t stop bleeding. And I DID NOT HAVE TIME to go to Urgent Care because 60 or so people were coming to our house in a few hours and THINGS HAD TO BE DONE. So D2 ran to the drugstore and came back with supplies and K2 butterflied me together, then put a finger wrap on, then I wore what basically looked like a finger condom (did I seriously just use that word on my blog????) and kept the whole thing dry while I finished prepping for the party. Ugh. It’s ok now, although it looks kind of nasty and bled through the bandage during the fireworks. Ugh again.
Alrighty then, on to the party. Fun people came:
The kids all enjoyed the heck out of pink car and the backyard:
There was a whole lotta eating:
And then we all got festooned in glowsticks and walked outside to lie down on the grass and watch the fantastic neighborhood fireworks show:
Yay! Hope everyone had a fab Fourth of July (or even Third of July). Cheers!
