A 4th of July Pool Party BBQ

Happy 4th everyone!  I hope each of you have a fun and safe holiday with your family and friends.
A special shout out and thank you to our Armed Forces.  You know the ones that help make the United States of America the land of the free and the home of the brave!  Woohoo!  This ones for you.  Thank you!
Today will be a low-key, relaxing and enjoyable day!  Mr. S and I are celebrating Independence Day with a pool party bbq.  We had one of these last year and it seems to be coming a tradition.  The best part is that we get watch fireworks from “inside” the house!  We’ve got a great view from both sides!  It’s hot and humid anyhow today.  Yucky monsoon weather…
Here’s the skinny…   last night we had our first monsoon of the season.  Let’s just say it made a mess of everything outside.  Oh, and the pool is a wreck – we have mud pond.  A broken, mud pond.  Mr. S is not very happy right now.  A layer of dust on everything and I mean absolutely everything!  Yuck!   Needless to say, the pool is ummm, broken.  Lucky for us we area long time clients of the pool company and they are sending someone out.  Yay!  Fingers crossed.  
So, after a little bookkeeping, blogging (this post) and party prep we will be enjoying the afternoon with friends poolside, sipping frosty beverages and enjoying a tasty bbq and let’s not forget the fireworks!  And hopefully a fixed pool, even it’s temporary and get’s us through today!
I’ll be posting a few pics here and here throughout the day.
How are you spending the holiday?  At a… BBQ, pool party, beach, fireworks?  Don’t forget that no matter where you are, what you do and who you spend it with enjoy yourself and be safe!  PS – don’t think about any work today, it’s an order!  It’s a 3-day weekend so, enjoy it.  Your work will still be there on Monday morning.
CHEERS to a fabulous 4th of July!
