I like the smell of fireworks...

Happy Friday!
I have decide on this lovely, much-too-warm Friday to share with you all just how very fun last Sunday was. (In case you forgot, Sunday was the 4th of July)

Actually, I'm afraid unless you were there you just won't be able to fully know the amazingness that it was, but I feel that it would be blogger deprivation if I didn't share what I could. So here goes.

Almost our whole Sunday school class (which is a lot of people) showed up, plus a couple stray youth group kids. (Something happened when I turned 20 and all of a sudden I'm calling everyone a kid, like I'm actually older than them or something. haha.) Our favorite class activity goes like this: Everyone brings their favorite games and some food to Floyd's, and then we spend hours playing and eating. And maybe pretending to faint on Floyd's nifty sofas... ehem.

I brought cookies and watermelon. Heh heh... Nobody even knew what I did to the watermelon.

There were footballs and Frisbees and bubbles. There was Wii. There was Apples to Apples. UpWords. Life. Uno. Other games I don't know and didn't play... Lots of stuff going on all at once.

Even some modeling.

(The other models, I think, would rather their picture not be posted publicly.)

Katie and Keith and I wanted to play Uno, so we rounded up some people...
Somebody took this great picture of Anna Leigh and Laura...

Matt brought his nifty camera. He left it unattended at some point... That was fun.
Props to Matt for sharing these pics with me so I could share them with you. :)

I took this pic of 3 of my favorite people!

The boys were hardcore and grilled us some foods.
Anna Leigh took a picture of my foods.
There also happens to be a picture of me eating said foods. Wow. Thanks.

You know what? I don't think this post is doing the day much justice at all.
There were just too many people having too much fun for me to properly express it.

Here's this picture of everybody.
The best game of Catch-phrase ever was sacrificed for this picture!

So, we ate lots of food, and played lots of games, and had lots of laughs. The day ended with fireworks, as it ought. Fireworks and "Jesus music" and Christian college horror stories and snarkiness... Perfect. :)

The End.

P.S. I just had to edit this post because I used to word "awesome" about 3 times.


  1. Yay for successful get togethers! Aren't they the best?

    And grilling is always a must on the 4th...We made our first smoked pulled pork meal and it was great! I wish I had photos, but I was feeling so under the weather that day that I didn't even care to snap a single picture! Next time. ;)

  2. That looks like SUCH a fun time! And wow, what a turnout! I'm sorry you lost your watermelon. There's nothing like cold watermelon in the summer. Thanks for sharing the fun photos. I'm glad your summer is "awesome" so far. ;-)~

  3. Hey little lady! I have been away forever and now have a ton of catching up to do but wanted to say hellooo! :)


YAY! I'm so glad you're leaving a comment. ^.^
