Here Comes the Boom

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend, or for my international readers, I hope your weekend was pleasant.  Friday and Saturday were great as I had the four quarterfinal match ups for the World Cup and any time I get to watch 4 games in 2 days, my weekend can be considered awesome.  But those games were only the beginning of an overall, spectacular weekend.  Saturday night was poker night and I was able to pull out a victory, my first one at my house this weekend.  After that, I went over to Brandon and Yvette's as Jess was over there already hanging out and playing board games with the girls.  I even got some games in, but got beat pretty bad.  I guess winning poker and board games was too much to ask!

Sunday was 4th of July and we spent it over at our friends Duncan and Kari's house for the second year in a row.  He lives a little outside of town so some of us did the caravan thing to his house where we barbecued, played some bocce, threw water balloons at each other, did a TON of fireworks, had a campfire in the backyard with smores, and then finally, camped in his big back yard.  Of course, going to bed after 2am and then having the sun wake you up at 730 kind of sucks.  And I didn't even drink that much!  Regardless, all of Monday was spent on the sofa minus the 2 hour nap around midday.  Of course, I had my camera and of course, I took pictures.  Here are a few and the whole set has a link at the bottom. 







The whole set is HERE!

Glad you had a great weekend. Any weekend watching soccer is the best - especially World Cup soccer.

Your pictures are great. That first one cracks me up with the ball and dog in mid-air. Perfection as always.

Nice action shot of the water balloon bursting!!

That dog is so cute. My mom's upstairs neighbor has a dachshund named Austin. We don't know the guy's name, though.

I looks like you all had a good recipe for fun. Nice shots, all of them. The girls look very James Bondish on that image.

We did have a good time, despite it being HOT. I guess that's what the water balloons were for! I love that you are there to document our adventures in life. We are so lucky to have such a good group of friends.

Wow, what amazing photos. I enjoyed them almost as much as an actual fireworks show, sincerely. Also, I am now seriously craving s'mores.

I'm a little jealous of your weekend. That water balloon shot is amazing. Nice photo work.
