4th of July Waterworks?

We usually stay home on the 4th of July as our dog Bella goes CRAZY when she hears fireworks. She is a lab/pit bull mix but is a total sweetheart. The poor thing gets so anxious and scared that she whimpers from the loud sounds. We usually put her in our bedroom and turn the TV on real loud so that the sound from the TV drowns out the noise from the fireworks.

This year my husband's cousin was kind enough to invite us {and Bella} over to their house for a BBQ. The host/hostess have a tradition of having a water balloon toss on the 4th of July. So, we all lined up and tossed water balloons back and forth until we had the last surviving team.

hmmm...I don't think Bernadette won!

Some of the boys also played a game of baseball with a whiffle bat and ball.
