July 4th 2011

So I've finally had some time to go through the millions of pictures I took on the 4th.

We had a blast. My mom cooked, and we lit a bunch of stuff, and we are in the perfect location to watch everyone in the neighborhood light off their big night stuff.

But our preferred way to spend the day is with Parachute Racing.

Stretching is very important in this game. You never know how it will go.

The Rules:
You have to catch the parachute before it hits the ground...
There are no other rules...

See what I's brutal out there.

But Jon reins victorious

Back from battle, with a victory.

Yeah, I won that one.

She took it out of my hand and tried to pass it off as her own.

Katie and Vladamir..pushing is legal..

He's way faster than her.

About the pushing...

It's encouraged!

I would have had that one too...but she pushed me to the ground.

No victory for Jon this time.

There is also a lot of smoke bomb dancing, this is one of my favorites.

Snagged it!

Ok, notice what everyone is doing. Where the hell is Jon going? I mean really? It's obvious to say, he didn't win that round.

I've got a video for your viewing pleasure...just so you can get your head in the game.

I hope everyone had as much fun as we did. Jon's going to train better for next year.

  1. I was running to get the smaller parachutes that were blowing further away. I was letting everyone else fight over the 1 big parachute. I think I snagged 3 little ones on that run. So it worked in my favor.
