4th of July

Yesterday was the 4th of July --- sort of.  My family all gets together four times a year, (Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving and Christmas).  We don't always manage to get together on those exact days but we make it close!!!  Yesterday was our 4th of July get together.  We had a pool party with lots of food, lots of family and lots of fun.

It's nice to spend time with family.  I like catching up on what's going on and seeing how the kids have changed and grown.  They grow up so fast and I am always amazed to find out about all of their activities and sports,  and their accomplishments in school and/or jobs.  One of my great nephews is interested in magic tricks now.  He has been practicing and showed us some of his tricks.  It was fun to try to figure out his secrets.

I managed to get a little bit of quilting work done after the party.  I like quilting at the end of a day like that.  Quilting gives me time to think about life, family, things that have happened and things I need to get done. 

Happy Quilting,
