The 4th Started Off With a Bang

We hosted the Dildine 4th of July festivities at our house this year.  We were expecting 50 plus guests for a late afternoon/evening party.  Brad decided to go for an early morning bike ride in the foothills above Eagle.  He called me after about an hour to come get him because he had wrecked.   A quick trip to the emergency room confirmed he had separated his shoulder.  I thought he was out for the day and I would be hosting the party.
The people with the water slide were supposed to show up at about 5.  They came and set it up about 10 in the morning.  My kids were in heaven.  The four younger ones played on it for almost 11 straight hours with short breaks for food.
Can you believe it?  A few pain killers and Brad was up and working throughout the party.  He manned the grill and here he is getting ready to put on a spectacular (although not entirely legal) firework display in the street in front of our house.
All the cousins (and some of the uncles) had a blast on the slide.
 The food was delicious.

We had a great time hanging out with family.
We love the 4th of July!
