It's That Time Again... Friends, Family, Fun, and Fireworks (Page Two)
We are here again to celebrate the birthday of our country! Old Ranch throws quite a party and it is a chance for us all to get together and catch up on everything. We have family (Two daughters, one son, one ex-son-In-law, four grandsons, and a great granddaughter joining us this year!)
We missed Zack and Connor (grandsons) as they had to work! We are missing our youngest daughter (silly girl lives in New Hampshire) and her family... Grandson, two granddaughters, and a great-grandson and great granddaughter! We are missing one daughter but that is unfortunately her choice.
Paul was still recovering from the hospital stay and Hans and others used his camera to capture the goings-on! Thank you all for the great pictures!!
Who all is joining us? Let's see via the spreadsheet!
Sam and Brenda... First ones here and they beat us this year!
