This past weekend we had our 2nd Annual Rogers/Freeman family cookout. My parents we able to make it down and the Rogers group came over for a nice family cookout. My mother actually rode back with us on our trip back from Indiana and stayed a couple of days with us before the cookout.
Just like last year, Ava and Grammy made chocolate covered pretzel rods, we hung out while the food was cooking, we chowed down on some delicious food, and we donned some festive 4th headgear for our annual family picture.
As usual, I loved having everyone over and it was good to have our families blended together with the addition of the Murphy clan this year. A nice way to celebrate a lovely holiday that has more to do with family and patriotism, then with giving presents. I like holidays like that. :)
