Happy Birthday America! We hosted the 2nd Annual Burns' Family BBQ Bonanza on the 4th. It was a lot of fun for all. Good food, great friends, and awesome fireworks made the event a success. I made skirts for the girls to wear - finishing at noon that day! And they ran around - eating and playing and eating-until almost 10:30PM! The latest they've ever stayed up. We enjoyed beer pong, too many sweets, and fun company. My girlfriend Meredith was in town from Colorado, and my cousins from Anaheim came too! I loved all the kids running around. My brother Andy introduced the girls to the little snap things that make a loud "crack" when you throw them to the ground. Megan called them "pop its" and is still asking me if I have any more for her to play with. Once it was dark, Matt and his friends became pyros at the end of our driveway. And above the treeline, we got to enjoy the big fireworks in the sky, that the Santa Ana Country Club shoots off. Here are some pics of the day.
