Another tradition...bbq at grammae and papa's house!

water sprinkler (to scare deer away from the garden).
|Walking down to see the R Fam's garden and chickens....|
|Oh no! The scarecrow got us on the way back!|
Of course we had our annual Fireworks Show courtesy of Shane and Marcus, with only one or two mishaps (the flowers around the Mary statue got a little singed by a rogue rocket, but that's ok). Fr. Armando was our guest of honor, and after spending many years in Italy we sure immersed him in American culture (for better or for worse, I don't know....). :o)
