I hope everyone had a great weekend. It started here Wed. night, and Sunday night the fireworks were still going off on the beach.
Thursday was the parade here in Southampton, and afterwards my son treated us to lunch at the golf club. 3 of his 5 kids here, dressed in their r, w and b.
Friday we were treated again to a fund raiser down on the ocean.
The Fresh Air Home provides a camp for children with disabilities. They have facilities to accommodate those in wheel chairs, etc.
My sister was in a wheelchair for her 26 years, so we are very aware of limited facilities for handicapped children. This is a very good cause.
Mostly everyone was dressed in red, white and blue, and we were greeted by a juggler on stilts. This is my family walking in.
The party is held at one of the very large homes on the ocean, and the Bay, where the fireworks were set off, is across the street.
This house is valued at over 19 MILLION!
Inside the gates a mini carnival was set up for the children.
The dinner was held on the Tennis Courts. What? Yours aren’t large enough to hold 300 people? :)
The grounds were beautiful!
Some type of sculpture.
You can see part of the house here, it looks out to the Ocean on one side, the Bay on the other.
The plates were paper, :(, but the cloths were fabric. Simple pot of petunias and a white candle graced the table.
The breeze from the ocean kept us cool, and there were no bugs!
Check out those red heels! Ouch, the tennis courts!
The highlight of the night, were the Grucci fireworks, set to music.
It was truly beautiful!
It was a wonderful family night, once in a lifetime for us. I am probably the only one there who hasn’t been to Europe! Shh, don’t tell. :)
So did you get some ideas for your next party?
The next day was our beach community’s annual party.
Hot dogs and all the fixings served at the edge of the Peconic Bay, with neighbors we have known for years. The community provides the hot dogs and cold drinks and people volunteer to bring sides. I made pulled pork.
It is fun to see everyone, the kids who were kids are now there with their kids!
Sunday truly was a day of rest! Lots of activity last weekend, and it was HOT!
So that’s what I was doing, how about you?
