Happy 4th of July Weekend!

To all knitters, crafters and bloggers, have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend from Snowbird and family.

Snowbird and hubby enjoyed the day off. We ate dinner at little sisters with "Baby" (niece #3) cooking for the group. She made burgers, baked chicken (for those on diets), potato wedges, corn, green beans and baked beans. Her Mom provided apple pie. We didn't have room for the apple pie. Maybe we will enjoy a piece today with a big cup of coffee. Thank you "Baby" for doing the cooking. It is always a joy when "Baby" cooks for the group.

When all of the cooking was going on, little sister and I sat down at the computer to do some geneology research. With little sisters help (she keeps me focused), there were some additions made to the geneology book that just seems to keep growing. We are going down different lines in the family tree now to see who is sitting out there in the branches. We both love that sort of thing. Especially the history associated with past members. We have my Dad's family through the Grandmothers line back to the Revolutionary War. We have a past Great (#5 I believe-always have to check the #) Grandfather who was in the Revolutionary War. So we look back at July 4th with pride knowing that somewhere back there a family member helped establish history and was part and parcel to our nations birthday in some way.

Again, Happy 4th to all!

Geneology is a lot of fun. We have info on my mother's side of the family back to the first half of the 1800s. Great-grandfather on my father's side came over on a ship from Ireland in the 1860s. I was thrilled when I actually discovered his name and that of my great-grandmother on a ship's passenger list.
