Celebrating 246 Years !

Happy 4th of July!

This is a beautiful, handmade quilt, 
that was given to me from a good friend 
who still lives in the Seattle area.

It needed to be quilted.
So, another good friend (here in Idaho),
volunteered to quilt the back for me.

 Now it's my turn 
to hand stich the boarder.

It's priceless to me!


Top Down!

Tom and I took a Sunday, evening drive into the country 
and drove past farm after farm.
It smelled so good.

We headed back home as the sun went behind clouds.
Big day tomorrow, 4th of July.


That's Tom behind the flag- haha

We found "our " spot along the parade route.
This is Melba, Idaho, a small town, 
with a perfct, small town parade.

Lulu, Kimmy and me

It is always well attended and everyone is so
patriotic, courteous, and friendly. 
Small Town!

To start the parade off, 
the motorcycles revved up their engines!
My favorite part!

This parade is so friendly. 
Ila and her friend, asked the horsewoman a question. 
She even stopped to answer them!

You always know when the parade is over.


After the parade we set up camp for a great view 
for the fireworks.
We had time to go home, to feed the dog and some of us, took a nap.
Then we headed back down to where we had left our "camp".

We brought our RV,
 so we can have the comfort of 
all it's facilities.

While waiting, it was a great time to play, 
snack and get caught up on life.
The kids enjoyed rolling down the hill on the blankets.

Mark is a great dad! 
More like a kid himself.

Creativity abounds while waiting


Then, right on time,
the show begins...

Then the  ooouuu's and ahhh's  can be heard all during the show.

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; the people whom he has chosed for his inheritance."

Psalm 33:12



  1. What a great time you had! It sounds like a perfect day.

  2. A parade with a horse and fireworks? Sounds like a lovely day!

  3. Having a camper available like that is brilliant! I'm sure it made everything better. As always, your family is beautiful. Riding with the top down in the evening sounds delightful. Love the quilt. xo
