Every year, Glenn & Kathy host the family for a 4th of July celebration. They are always nice to include me in the invitations and it's always a fun time for all.
The Big Moon Lake owners association sponsors a boat parade with prizes for the best decorations.
The Johansens have won 1st place several years running, so this year, the decorations were toned down and had a patriotic theme.
There were A LOT of little kids about age 7 and under, all cousins, and they were having a blast playing a big game of Red Light / Green Light.
|Vinny was running the game for a while.|
|Some of the older kids even played.|
|Milli, Charli, Jake, Jackson, Bryce & Vinny|

|Dana got in the water and had to try to get the kids off the raft.|
|Dana was successful.|
|Eagle fly by|
|Nice of the eagles to fly over|
|Ride the boat, Jackson hates it when I take his picture.|
That doesn't stop me from trying.
|The game is to climb on the raft and knock the other kids off the raft.|

Great nephew Cordell wanted to take 'walks' with me.
He would come and find me and tell me it was time for a walk.
I would walk down the road with Corde while he rode his cycle,
he made sure I knew to call it a cycle.
It was a good brisk walk for me to try to keep up with him.
He is quite a talker and a little character.
It was quite entertaining and I hit my steps goal too!

|Pretty clouds, perfect weather.|

Artsy fartsy, eh?
It was a good family visit and I enjoyed seeing so many of the kids.
I got some good sun, which I always love and ate some good food too.
Mike grilled chicken and pork on a grill that I should have taken a photo of.
The best chicken legs I have ever had. Yummy.
My yard looks good for the weekend too.
|Everything looks great in what the folks used to call 'the red room'.|
Hope you all had a safe 4th of July.
