A Good Old-Fashioned 4th of July!

I know I'm prejudiced, but I love my neighbors- and my neighborhood, Greenmont Walk!
Several of the neighbors organized our Second Annual 4th of July Barbecue in the cul de sac, and it was just the perfect way to celebrate the day.
Under the shade of a stately oak tree, friends gathered to share food and fun with a festive, patriotic theme.
Warren did a fabulous job manning the grill, and everyone brought their favorite dish to share. Children played in the safety of the cul de sac and waited excitedly for the sunshine to turn to dusk, so they could light their sparklers. Even Moms and Dads and Grandmas and Grandpas could be seen twirling the brightly lighted magic sticks! Finally, it was time for the Big Fireworks Show to begin. (We are fortunate to be able to watch The Alpharetta Fireworks Display right from our lawn chairs in the cul de sac!) No matter how old we are, when it's time for fireworks, we are all kids again!
Thanks to Warren and Colette, Trey and Jenny and Amy and Tim for organizing such a fun time for everyone. I know the children will remember these special times when families had fun together just hanging around in the backyard!
