And when the sun set

greenhouse night

the bonfires lit and the sparklers twinkled


while fireworks glowed and banged and shined.


And then since one day was just not enough…

there were bloody marys and screwdrivers with the next morning’s coffee


and a shared breakfast of pancakes with blueberries and chocolate chips


and scrambled eggs and bacon and sausage.

  2. What a great party for the 4th, Jodi!! And great photos! Looks like you had a fun time with huge amounts of food. Is this a yearly thing? Family and friends? Someone did a great job organizing it.

    • It is the second annual, so the second in what looks to be a yearly celebration of amazing family and friends and fun. The families all work hard and play hard too! That’s what is most fun 🙂

    • That is my cousin Joyce’s greenhouse, and it became the “bar” for the celebration with a margarita station, mixed drinks, pop, water, and wine all in various spots. They had the greenhouse built by the Amish from windows they replaced in their home. It is magical! 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed.
