Independence Day

I’d better post my 4th of July pictures before it’s the 4th of August!

Tony’s parents came down for the weekend. It was fun to have them here to visit. Papa Tom brought a project with him: switching our crappy basement windows for gorgeous block windows. The kids HAD to help. They wouldn’t even wait to get clothes on.

This is priceless. It looks like Mason is about to take Ethan out while Corinne suffers from the effects of someone spiking her orange juice.

Once the windows were out, we headed to the Dublin Parade to meet up with our best buddies.

After the parade, everyone came back to our house for steak tacos, lime/cilantro rice, fruit salad, etc, etc. It was a delicious Mexican feast. No burgers for us! Then the men went to work placing the windows. Again, there were a few helpers:

Being the scatterbrain that I am, I don’t have any after pictures. Needless to say, they are beautiful windows. You’ll have to come and visit to see them for yourself if you need more closure than that.
