Happy Birthday…To Our Country!

We always plan a big BBQ for Independence Day.  It is a family tradition that began long ago with Don’s Grandaddy E.J. Northcutt.  When Don was a little boy his Grandaddy would always cook on the 4th and all the family would gather in the pasture and eat and have fellowship.

When we were married 11 years ago Don had just lost his Grandaddy the year before and he wanted us to carry on the tradition.

This year marked our 11th annual BBQ, and we had a great time with our family and friends.  We had one of our biggest crowds, there were 56 in attendance.  Everyone had a great time and if they left hungry, it was their own fault!

The kids had a time playing with the water guns, chalk and bubbles.  The adults had a fun time watching the kids!  They didn’t know there was going to be entertainment, too!

After everyone left, we visited with our good friends the Mashburn’s and Witcher’s until sunset when they had to head out for their long drive home.  We then drove to Blytheville to see the fireworks show.  The kids didn’t seem to mind they had to stay in the van due to all those pesky mosquitoes!  It was a long day, but we all agree it was the best 4th of July EVER!!!
