Weekend Recap

Greg has two firework stand locations. The smaller of the two is on our property. When it opens, well, just suffice it to say, "Get ready."

Marilyn and I did meals and snacks for our kiddos and their friends. We've had casseroles, brisket, sandwiches, tacos, pies, homemade ice cream, and whatever else we could come up with to feed everyone. The dishwasher ran. The washing machine ran. Oh, and the trash piled up.

Greg and his partner are paid to do two city shows--ours and another city about 10 miles away.  Both shows went off without a hitch with awesome finales!!!

Jonah helped the "guys" everyday. He was the cutest thing ever -- greeting, selling, and sacking.


Chad, Marilyn, and Greg


The gang...


Justin, Glory, Keelie and Jonah


We wouldn't take for these few days of fun and fellowship with the family and friends who stayed or just dropped by! Can't wait for next year!

  2. Wish we could have stopped by. Love the pictures! Thank you for sharing. I can imagine how cute and professional, at the same time, Jonah was! Jase used to be like that, working with my mom at a Service League thrift shop.

  9. Wow, what an exciting weekend for you and yours.
    Family ventures are so much better than doing it alone. We had severe storms here Sunday night so didn't venture out to see the shows but got to see a little from our upstairs bedrooms.
    Have a wonderful week.
    Hugs, Noreen
