Fourth Fun

The fourth of July in the Bozone household started out with a concert for the summer band camps that Doyle is in charge of. A two week camp ended on the 4th. He always has a mini concert to show parents and friends what the students have learned. Julianna and Samuel were in this particular camp. Since their cousin, Daniel, from Alaska plays trumpet, Doyle allowed him to join the event. After the concert we went out to eat with the family that is in town for the holidays. There were 6 out of 7 Bozones in the area for several days, so that is why I haven't spent time on the computer blogging. It has been busy, but fun.

Here are Marlin and Elaine's kids along with ours.

Samuel poses with his trumpet.

Julianna playing the timpani. She plays whatever percussion instrument Doyle assigns her.

Later on in the afternoon, we attended our church community day. This was a first for us, and it was a hit. We invited the community to a free event to celebrate the day with our church family. There were 6 bounce houses, free t-shirts advertising our V.B.S., a petting zoo, pony rides, and lots of food and treats. This included grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, Starbucks lemonade, sno-cones, popcorn, slushies, cotton candy, and bottled water. It was so much fun.

Samuel and Doyle enjoy themselves.

The cute lambs.

Joseph and his friend, Collin, with a lamb.

I had to get this picture. They were captivated with the lamb's wiggly tail.

Samuel and several of his friends left the bounce houses to play in the mud. They had a blast using a skim board to sail across the water.

Joseph enjoying his cotton candy.

What do you do when you have the sticky stuff up your nose?

Julianna taking a pony ride--she loves horses of any kind.

Lemonade anyone?

After the community day, we joined our family for fireworks in West Palm. Doyle and I waiting for the fireworks to start.

We had a grand time being together. I have lots of pictures from our time with the Bozone clan. We are making memories together and I will post more next time.

Looks like ya'll had tons of fun on the 4th, too! I have to tell you, the lady leading the pony rides was disgusted with the boys in the mud. While Nate was riding the pony, she went on and on about how nasty that was. I didn't bother to tell her that two of the boys were mine. I just said "well, boys will be boys!" Apparently she doesn't have any boys of her own! I mean, who would ever have the heart to tell a boy he can't play in the mud? (unless there are life-threatening germs in the water, of course)
