Celebrating the 4th of July

We had big plans for our annual 4th of July party.  But the rain had different ideas.  It was an all day rain.

The plan was to be doing this.

And the living room.

My entryway looked like this all day.

So we had to make it fun!  We ate and ate and ate lots of food.

And enjoyed each others company.  Yes that is a Vikings shirt on Mark but we let him stay for the party anyway.

We even braved the rain and went to the park for the fireworks.  The Kapitz family tried to all fit under one umbrella.

It just goes to show that you can have big plans and even though everything doesn’t turn out like you planned it, as long as you are with family and friends you can make it a memory.
