July 6, 2009 (or: can't think of a title)

*Updated with pics

We went to my sister's for the 4th, and had a really nice time. We swam, we ate, drank, talked, laughed, visited with family, and played poker. Sylvia's getting pretty good! She won a couple of hands, as did I, so we both got back more than the buy-in. Yay!


Sylvia giving me a ride.

Sylvia told me that when the Club had Casino Night a few months ago, she was the only girl who knew how to play blackjack and poker! That's my girl :)

Oh, yeah, and we saw fireworks. We took the time out and all, but I have to say, even my girls seem over it. The girls wanted to go back in the pool, I wanted to go in the jacuzzi, and most everyone else wanted to eat. Are we terribly jaded? Yeah, whatever.

The girls on my cousin's bike:





My latest LA Moms post is up - it's about childhood stardom, if that intrigues you at all to stop by and say hello. Also, a few posts up at Examiner, but they're pretty local-centric. Single parents, please help me find topics for Examiner! What are your burning questions? Do you have a piece of advice that you're dying to share? Please email me: admccaffery at gmail.

Hope everyone (well, the Americans anyway) had a happy 4th!

It sounds like a pretty wonderful 4th of July. Glad you got a good break.

I am envious of the pool-and yeah, we are all just DONE with the whole fireworks thing.

Glad you had a good weekend.

Sorry to hear about the ex (in your other post) but it sounds like you guys are doing just fine in spite of him.

You don't want to hear my topics, they're all depressing. Hehe.

Glad you had a good holiday.

Glad the 4th was great

I love these simple little posts as much as your hyperpolitical ones!

The post at LA Moms was thought provoking...I never realized you were up for that kind of role! I wonder how you feel about these little baby beauty contests? The Jon Benet Ramsey type...personally, I think they are child abuse and disgusting...that would make for a good post, April!

Glad you had some down time!

It looks like you had a great time!

Glad you had a good weekend.

Two three day weekends in a row now, right? Good for you...

Haven't seen you around in a bit, so it's nice to come by and see you're doing well.

Get Sylvia on one of those poker competitions and she'll make enough money to pay her way through college!

Glad you had a nice 4th. And good to see you posting here again. I've missed you!
