July 4th Marathon!

We were invited for waffles at Caryn's house. Rob and Anna stopped in to join us for the feast.
Rob was intently working on his waffle design.The overhead viewCaryn captures me at work.So I return the favor...Shelby looks on with an eye on all the food.After brunch, we walked over to Anna & Tyler's house to play with her pup Hank. She offered refreshments and happened to have Beth's favorite! Another cool labelDidn't try this one!Caryn couldn't decide which flavor, so she went with both!
We went out into the back yard where Shelby showed Hank the joys of diving into a cool pond.
They lived up to their breeding by retrieving balls all afternoon.The hard part was getting the balls back. I had to go in after them. Didn't spill a drop of my bloody mary!Shelby once again fell victim to her pedigree and attempted to catch a duck for us. The duck was never in any danger, trust me! One tired pup!Later in the evening, Caryn made some awesome appetizers and we planned to cook some steaks on the grill. There was no way we would eat all that food, so we decided to save the steaks for the next day.Hank helps with the dishesPart 2 was steak the next day!We set up the Canon G9 to record a time-lapse movie of the carnage!
