R.O.C.K. In The U.S.A.

Look what I got! The awesome Jenn over at The Peacock's Nesting Place gave this to me. Jenn has just moved back to the United States after spending a year in England with her family. And as soon as she gets finished unpacking, she'll start blogging about her adventures here. But no more pictures of castles, unfortunately. Thanks again, Jenn!

Remember back in early July, everyone in the blogosphere put up pictures and videos of their Independence Day activities? Yeah, well, I just got around to putting together a slideshow of our Fourth of July celebration so lets just pretend that it's actually July 5, that August does not begin this week, and that I am not a procrastinator. Okay?

Here's some pictures of the family, food, and fireworks accompanied by the music of Johnny Cougar, John Cougar, John Cougar Mellencamp, John Mellencamp. Also known as my boyfriend in 1988.

    Merrie--Wow, yesterday was so exhausting! Thanks for the tag:)

  8. My children would be so jealous if I showed them all these fireworks! We didn't do fireworks this year for the first time and they complained and whined so much...we did buy them each a box of snap-n-pops...somehow not quite the same...those papers are still floating all over my yard...

  9. Love the video, what a great stash you had of fun fireworks!

    I love JCM too.

  10. Elizabeth--That's the worst part-cleaning up! I dread when they get interested in bottle rockets. Ugh.
