4th of July Agenda

The bunting has been hung, the fireworks are purchased, & the pontoon boat is gassed up!  We are ready for a full day of celebrating our beautiful country!  My dad is the king of family agendas, so this holiday is no exception.  Here's what the Simpsons will be up to today:
July 4th, 2014
8:00-9:00am  Up & at e'm. 
Breakfast including maple bars and either bloody mary's or gin fizzes.
9:30-10:30am  Trail walk for interested adults or outdoor ball kicking for others.
11:00am-12:30pm  Downtown parade and walk thru of the city park. 
Followed by the first round of Blongo competition
(a discussion will ensue if and when there will be a second round).
12:30-1:00pm  Lunch, grandchildren admiration, and coloring demonstration.
1:00-2:30pm  Nap time or cigars, beer, & practice round darts for eligible adult males
(adult females have a choice of being included or enjoying wine and a garden tour or both).
3:00-5:00pm  Party boat tour of the lake. 
 Awards for first adult in the lake and first grandchild.  No rap music.
5:30-6:30pm  Darts tournament.
7:00-8:00pm  Dinner with the hummingbirds.
8:00-9:00pm  Grandchildren bathtime, naked nudies, and goodnight hugs & kisses
(this presents a timing problem if grandchildren wish to participate in the next agenda item - their parents must provide input 30 minutes before the boat leaves the dock).
9:00pm-?  Open mike, fire pit (no hot coal walking this year) & party boat fireworks tour.
?-? Recap of the day.  Outside & quietly please.
Can't wait to see where the day takes us! 
And just for kicks, here's a little looksy at 4th of Julys past.  And yes, I do have a ridiculous amount of american flag swimsuits...
You can see my entire 4th of July themed maternity shoot here.
Have a safe & wonderful holiday!
