Fourth of July

Down on the farm for the Fourth of July. The barn with a barn quilt square...



The cantina, where we eat our meals family style...



The straw bale greenhouse,



home of the weekend's schedule and...



some intense Pokemon action.



However, Pokemon battles were nowhere near as intense as the water fights. Usually upon arrival we are set upon with a barrage of water; balloons, water guns, a hose, whatever.
Weeks ahead of time C#1, and D. work out the strategies. We stop at a place short of our destination to load the weapons, and they are allies upon arrival, but allegiances shift pretty quickly to kids v. adults.

This year the kids had a brilliant plan. They sneakily stockpiled all the water guns, and the water balloon ammo. Great idea! Until this happened...



J. discovered the cache of weapons.



Not looking good. Look at these guys!



They are ruthless. This is WAR, WATER WAR!



This is my lame attempt to capture the action without suffering any hits.

Aaaah. The countryside is so idyllic.

LOOKS DREAMY! I love old barns! You can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl... I'll always have a soft spot for them. :-D
