FOLEY'S FOLLIES

July 4th Weekend

Busy, busy weekend so I have today to completely veg out without having anything to do or anywhere I have to be!  Definitely need more days like this to enjoy.

Joining Mary at the Little Red House for Mosaic Monday...Check out the link for some great photo collages!

A friend of mine planted all the flowers at the Arnolds Park Amusement Park this year, so I checked it out Friday evening.  Paula and Julie did a wonderful job... only a small sampling of what they planted.


Cute bench at the Amusement Park - perfect place for vacation photos...




Saturday night went to a BBQ at my son and DIL's house...then off to the fireworks display on Big Spirit Lake.  They also had a fireworks display in Arnolds Park on Sunday night.  Was able to get some funky looking photos of the fireworks as they were evaporating over the Lake...



Hope you all had a enjoyable, safe Holiday weekend!

What a wonderful dress your blog is wearing! I am going to steal the idea of the strawberries with whipped cream (is that what it is?) and blueberries on top...easy to fix and so cute! The flowers are so pretty and the pics of the fireworks are amazing! Sounds like your 4th was fun!...hugs...Debbie

Love the new blog pics! and the mosaics are fabulous, Barb! Beautiful flowers for sure, but the fireworks are awesome! Sounds like a great time and those monkeys remind me a few certain funny friends, LOL!

Enjoy the down time!

Arnold park is a cute with the monkey bench. It made me smile! Your friends planted some amazing flowers and your fireworks mosaic is super. We had some fireworks last night too which are always so much fun to watch.

Oh what wonderful mosaics! We missed the fireworks this year, so it's been nice to see them in lots of mosaics. Thanks for sharing at MM. :)

Barb, your blog looks beautiful. Love that header! You got some great photos of the fireworks, and your mosaics are so pretty. I made the strawberry pie you posted for the 4th, and it was delicious! Actually, I made 2 of them, and they were GONE very quickly! laurie

Thanks so much for the links to the strawberry recipe! And another beautiful header! You must have been lying on the ground to get that great shot! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

I love your collages and the gorgeous photos you used to assemble them. I also got a real kick out of the monkeys on the bench. I promise to hear no evil, speak no evil or see no evil. It is hard to capture pictures of fireworks but you done a wonderful job. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary
