Let freedom ring...

I love everything about the Fourth of July!  Summertime, BBQ, swimming & a get-together with family and friends!  I love the colors and patriotism that symbolize the 4th.  And, as usual, I will celebrate all month long!  

I hosted our gathering this year and, of course, Twice Loved Vintage showed up!  We had 4 little critters on the guest list {9-12 years old} so I wanted to have some games we could play with adults and kids.  We drew names to create random partners and played bean bag toss, ring toss, ladder ball & horseshoes.  After tallying the scores, the winners received beach towels and the right to brag!

Here's the TLV bean bags I whipped up an hour before the party...


...and the plates set up ready to play...


...strawberries filled with white mocha cheesecake...


...and our doggies, Abby & Shelby, enjoying a dip in the pool...


I am so thankful for the freedom we have in this country 
& I hope that God will protect our troops that fight for our freedom every day!

Just me being me...Lori
