Happy 4th of July!!

Hope everyone has a safe and fun 4th of July! We had our annual cookout last night because a couple of people have to work Monday :(  My best friend, Cathy Z., and her family were able to come. Cathy was my supervisor from 2006 -2008 and became my best friend. She is now working in the Quality department at the BMW plant in Greer,SC. Drives a different car everytime I see her!
Here she is trying to get her camera to work...

This is her husband, Otto. Otto is from Germany.

Otto's niece, Aleni, has been visiting the USA for three weeks. She is also from Germany and has learned to speak English from her American boyfriend who is serving in Afghanistan. Isn't she beautiful?

This is Cathy's grandson, Eli. He is 5 years old and has the most beautiful eyes and curly hair.

Hamburgers and hotdogs were the food of the hour. That's my daughter. Janet, helping Sloan fix his plate. She wouldn't let me take a picture of her. She has lost about 78 pounds and looks like she did in high school. She is supposed to have a 20 year high school reunion later in the year.
The long haired dude is Otto.
Sloan and Eli enjoying the food.
Gavin and Kayla - the twelve year old grownups!!
Craig going down the slide..
I don't remember looking like this when I was twelve years old!!!
Micki and Timmy...
Ready for some fireworks?
Pre-darkness fireworks..
Doesn't this say it all?

I just noticed that the date is wrong!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Looks like it was a fun get-together! That Otto has some long hair, doesn't he? Could give my brother a run for his money, ha. Hope you're having a great holiday!
