|After breakfast we gathered at the CCs house. Here the girls|
are entertaining Violet with plastic bags. :o)
|Meeting up with Bob and Sue K, my parents' old neighbors|
when they lived up in Alpena the 1st time.
|Mom got some toilet paper! People in the|
parade were also handing out otter pops and
Mountain Dew. :o)
|Marcus fit right in with his 3-wolf shirt (with American flag!),|
camo shorts, and John Deere hat. No ponytail, though. And
his Maui Jims and Nikes were a little too stylish for Alpena.

|We walked down to Lake Huron to cool off|
(although the temperature was PERFECT, not
hot at all, but still great for wading).
|There was a big sand sculpture contest going on, and Uncle|
Justin had an entry--he got 4th place out of 30! Wow!
|Back at gma & gpa's--our 4th of July gang including Aunt|
Christine, Uncle Brian, Austin, and Evan from downstate.
|the cousins (minus the K family, they came a few days later)|
|Gemma loves Uncle Joe.|
|We met up again with Bob and Sue near the lake,|
to watch fireworks. Sue made some great cupcakes!
|The young kids plus Erica stayed with gma/gpa and watched|
the fireworks from the back yard. This picture shows everyone
else who went to the park near Lake Huron.
