pennsylvania & our 4th of july celebration

My parents booked their flights to Pennsylvania months ago.
Once I got word that I would be driving from New York to Minnesota, I planned my days off around visiting family along the way.
Bryan drove up with Cali from Charlotte.
My schedule allowed me 3 days at the farm with everyone!Bryan burning boxes of Martha trash for me in my uncles burn bin
The girl likes to take a load off out in the field Bryan threw chicken wing bones in the grass and my dad then put them up in the tree. The next day Cali was hot on the sent and was bound and determined to get those darn bones down from the tree!
Bryan kickin' it on my uncles walker!!!!
Just hoping the bones will fall from the tree!Bry went over to distract her
She really wanted him to get the bones down for her, but he wouldn'tSo instead he distracted her with a stick. Girlfriend loves fetch! 4th of July
My dad playing some b-ball out front
Cali loves cruisin' around my aunt & uncles property!
My girl was out cold... love her bedtime cuddles!The mom and dadAmish storeRelaxing on my families back porchMinor league baseball game with my dad, his fraternity brother and his son, Jonathon (who's also my good friend)It really was a boring few days in Pennsylvania.
Not sure why, but no one was their usual "fun" self, including myself.
Definitely goes down in the books as the most uneventful 4th of July weekends to date.
Oh well.
