Why is it.................

you come back from vacation, needing a vacation? We had a blast at my sister and brother-in-laws in Alabama. Too much fun!

Friday night was Pirate night. It was a success! I think everyone enjoyed it. We did have some rebels that didn't get into the dressing like a pirate like the rest of us. But the were quickly adorned with some of the supplies I made. We even had a treasure hunt!

My daughter Jessie (on the left) and my granddaughter Katie (on the right). Aren't they the cutest pirates?

My Mom and all my sister's and me. (My brother wasn't able to come.)

A group photo of all the Pirates.

Fourth of July we had a busy schedule

Sack races. One for the kids and one for the adults.

Egg toss.

Balloon sling.


Great entertainment right before the fantastic fireworks! It lasted so long my neck hurt looking up!

I also got a prize from the prize box! This is the first year I have ever gotten anything! (my Mom was in charge of the prize box and she decided I deserved one for trying) Thanks Mom!

Well, that was just the first two days of my vacation, do you see why I am tired?

My sister and her husband do such a great job every year! Can't wait for next year!

Be back soon! (after I rest a little)

I love the pirate theme. My sister Vickie and her sister-in-laws (6 of them) do this once a year. They will meet at a cabin in Mississippi and a theme is decided. One of the sisters usually makes the clothes and gets everything together. She always has lots of pictures. They've been doing this for 15 years.
Looks like you had a great time.
