Papas World – staying with our daughter – 4th of July

I am glad I had my HIPPIE YEARS all those years ago! YIKES!

All those years later – we have sold our home

and are spending time back and forth between our daughters homes.

Here – we are at Debby and Mikes at Lake Holiday – Cross Junction.

We have come for the 4th. of July – and the fireworks on the lake

at a friends of theirs dock!

Sarah

We have been coming here for the past 14 years to be with them

The three oldest grand daughters!

Debby and Sherry
We all are a family of healthy eating

Sherry is a senior sales cordinator

and Debby a Qualified National Marking Director.

Both for the same company –

The Juice Plus Company

and both certified health coaches.

The peaceful setting – ducks on the water – speed boats –

and pontoon boats pulling tubes and skiers.

fire works at dusk
all the boaters gathered at the marina

We had a excellent view – and had watched the boats headed to the marina.

Observing is my nature – I like to watch – listen –

and I as I get older – I am learning –

looking and feeling the vibes of others.

I found this funny – but wife may not agree! Lol

GOOD MORNING

For the next three and one half days –

we will be at our daughters house in Lake Holiday – Cross Junction , Va.

By the time you read this – a week has passed –

As I have LEARNED how to write and schedule !!!!

THREE GENERATIONS
Debby – Sarah – Maddy – Sherry and Ella

First night here – walk to the Dam of the Lake Holiday –

Where one car and chairs were placed around NOON !

You have to do this because hundreds of cars and twice as many people

Park here to watch the fireworks at dusk !

And a lot more than that are at the beaches and club house !

The water around the point – is crowded by 50 to 100 Boats !

MOR MOR

” LOOK AT ALL THOSE DECKS ” on that house she exclaims !

Five or six decks!

Sherry has the field glasses –

and bringing into view the houses with all the decks !

DECKS

When we arrived – Mike and I drove the second car down –

The area had become almost full

Cars and chairs everywhere.

The reflection off the water –

A few kids swimming –

Our view sitting on the dam
Ella and Maddy

Getting excited as the darkness sets in.

Maddy and Ella
all those years ago

Conversing with neighbors –

Watching the boats –

Wishful thinking on buying a Pontoon Boat !

Sarah sitting on the rocks

The rest of the family joined us later-

Celebrating Sherry’s birthday –

Waiting

And then the first burst – that long waited moment has arrived!

And now it begins
REFLECTIONS

A small celebration of the Birth of a Nation –

Caught through the lens of a camera –

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Tomorrow is the birthday – HAPPY 4 TH.

Each year we celebrate – we pause for reflection – and give thanks !

GOOD MORNING – SMELL THE COFFEE

A special day is almost here –

I remember many of them in the past –

One time we were at a park in SWNY state –

and we had SNOW FLURRIES !

That was weird !

We often spent time back then with friends – picnics –

But then had to go back to work –

Today – we are retired –

And mostly –

we spend it with family – or on vacation with them.

OUR NATION – LOVE FOR ALL

My wife’s birthday falls the day after –

So – we try to separate the two –

But that is easier said than done !

This year – we are traveling to our daughters house in Lake Holiday , Va.

But there have been a few times we spent this time on the lawn –

Of the Capital in D.C.

Watching the free performance –

And – the fireworks display.

Always gives me chills when we do that.

Our church and belief is big in our lives –

We give with no expectations of return.

This is just who we are.

Together as one.

CHANGE THE WORLD – MAKE IT A BETTER PLACE !

WHAT WE SEE – IS WHAT WE FEEL

Tomorrow we celebrate – we pray – we give – we love – we embrace

THIS IS WHO WE ARE

“OUR COUNTRY TIS OF THEE – GREAT LAND OF LIBERTY “

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY EVERYONE !
