Fourth of July Weekend 2016

2016 Fourth of July Weekend
Rutherfordton, NC
and Spartanburg, SC

For the 4th of July Weekend Amy's Sister Jenny and her family (and friend JoAnne) came down for a visit on their way to Atlanta.  Most of Saturday was spent at Amy and Jenny's parents place.

Amy's dad was cooking up about 500 pounds of BBQ.  Uncle Bill and Aunt Shirley were down to help out.

Most of us figured the best way to help with the BBQ cooking was to just get out of the way, so we organized a little soccer game.

Jenny, Hugh, and JoAnne continued on to Atlanta, leaving Amy and I to watch over our nieces Grace and Caroline.  We had a great time with the girls!

You look like you all had the best time, nothing like a bit of swimming on the 4th July!
