Asserting Independence

We went to a family gathering at Uncle Tiny's house and participated in a very down home celebration of the 4th. It was like I remember holiday celebrations being when I was growing up. I thought black and white would be the only way to capture it in all of it's nostalgic glory. The gals had a great time in the pool that Honey brought. Let's see...the food I remember included grilled corn on the cop, beef burgers, pork burgers, potato salad, baked beans, cole slaw, macaroni and cheese (2 kinds), hot dogs, the kind of cheese that comes individually wrapped, Erin's great cake with chocolate/coffee/cinnamon/coconut milk icing, and... well, you get the picture. The old car is a Chevy nomad. Quite cool. Ruby's older cousins were into taking photos and Ruby had fun being a model. She loves her cousins.

Oh, what fun--beautiful kiddos and a glorious car... and you're right; there's something about the black and white that captures this so perfectly. Looks like it was a wonderful 4th!
