A Cool and Wet 4th!


Well, it was a wet and cool 4th here in Cincy. I don't think the temperature topped 75 degrees all day. We even had all the windows opened. It was the coolest 4th that I can remember in a long time. No swimming this year because of the rain and cool temps but hopefully it'll warm up next week. Our pool temp is 72 degrees, which is really cold for this time of year. I tried to take some photos of fireworks but they didn't turn out well. Does anyone know the secret to taking good fireworks photos?


Here's a photo of our Grandson Cameron and Papa. Look at that stylin' little guy in his patriotic shirt and plaid shorts. Cameron is being baptized today so it's another busy day.


And here are our two little granddaughters, Maddie and Sydney in their patriotic shirts. Baby YA Ya(that's what Maddie calls Sydney) doesn't look too happy. LOL


Only Maddie loved the rain. LOL She thought the puddles were great fun to jump in. Looks like Christina thought the same thing.



I thought this photo was cute, it looks like Mama and Maddie are on their own computers. Maddie is actually watching a portable DVD player and Mama is using Grandma's computer. Can you see how I have decorated the front of my laptop? LOL And little Sydney is sound asleep in between. Hope everyone had a safe and good 4th. I'm behind on my blog reading but hopefully I'll be able to catch up with everyone in the next few days!

Cute photos! Sorry you had rain, but it's still nice to be together with family on the holidays no matter what the weather is.

Hugs!

Hi Joan, what adorable pics of your family. These sure are precious times. I remember some cooler July beginnings when we lived there. Well, it will be way too hot soon enough. LOL
Sounds like you are having a nice holiday weekend in spite of the rain.
Blessings,

It's too bad the weather can't always cooperate on special days like this but that's life. We started the day with rain but thankfully it cleared enough to have our festivities outside.
