|We couldn't let the birthday girl blow out the candles on her cake, so she had to make do with a sparkler!! |
Happy Birthday Nancy!
|We love our old log cabin porch for gatherings in our central area. |
Couples sit close, but the rest of us honor the 6' rule.
|Cathy, Joyce and Vonda visiting at a distance|
|Above, Linda, Nancy and Maggie visit on one side of the porch,|
While below, Karen Richard and Marj are spaced out on the other side!
|Some folks, like Anne and Jeff, set their chairs back away from the activity|
where they could enjoy the festivities..... and the shade!
|Still other neighbors came to the central area to say hello, but kept to their porches|
for social time. Mary Kay took the prize for the wildest headpiece
(truthfully, she was the only with WITH a headpiece!!)
|Stewart and Karen toasting the 4th!|
|We had a S'mores table, with individually placed portions, and a plexiglass cover. |
Hand sanitizer for before and after.
|There were some very great S'more ingredients.|
Mary and Meg particularly liked the white chocolate and strawberry combo!
|We had to roast our marshmallows individually (Meg's turn here)|
|Joyce and Karolyn are trying to decide what their S'more toppings will be|
|Mary and Joyce sharing the fire at 6' - I wonder if smoke deters the virus?!|
|Anne's turn. She's one of THOSE people who lights her marshmallow on fire,|
waits for it to fully burn, and then blows it out.
|Ayn didn't want to get close to people but Mary told her she would bring her a S'more|
of her choice. Ayn left a plate and a note by her door!
|We found a couple of games that could be played with social distancing - one is corn hole!|
|Here Richard and Karolyn are close..... but they are married!|
|Joyce and Mary took on a game of Jenga. They play cooperatively to see|
how tall they can get the stack
|But really..... Joyce lost (so much for cooperative culture!)|
|Socially distanced cake eating!|
|Around the community, there were plenty of 4th of July decorations..........|
All in all, a great holiday and a safe and successful birthday celebration!!!
