"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Fourth of July Party

This was Sunday's annual 4th of July party at our friends April and Rich's house.
I'm not quite sure how it happened, but one minute we were all eating and the next there was a fierce competition in the deep end of the pool. It started with graceful diving and then moved into belly flops and wild antics. The girls at poolside were the 'judges.' Too much fun.

A very popular man that day. A wizard with the blender.

Or should I say 'whizzard.'

That's not fog. Richie installed these awesome 'water misters' off the back patio to keep you cool.
Completely awesome.

Sam & Lisa. Sam was born on the 4th of July :) Perfect name, right?

Say 'cheese' Wendy :)

I would have taken more photos but I was too busy having fun.

It is wicked hot here in NY today. Remember to check on your little old neighbors and to give your Corgis lots of water. Stay cool, my lovelies! xo xo CS ^..^

What fun it looks as if you're all having! The misters were certainly a good idea, huh?
Our corgis don't want to venture outside at all, leaving the a/c is not on their agenda!!

What a festive and fun way to celebrate our Independence Day! I saw on the news that you guys are really hot over there. I don't know about your humidity level. We were hot here, but our humidity is usually fairly low, and it was only up in the high 90's instead of in the 100's, so not bad for this time of year!

Corgin it! said...
