Fourth of July

Last Wednesday was the fourth....typically a very un-exciting holiday in my household (no offense Mom, Dad). Usually the whole Fam comes home in a gathering of husbands, girlfriends, boyfriends...you know, the like. The pool gets some use, home-made ice-cream is made, the golf cart is taken to the top of the hill, and the Pulsiphers accompany us while watching the Temecula fireworks show. It's how it has been played for years. Like Christmas! However, this year Ben & Lu had other obligations, which started a whole chain of siblings drop-outs till finally mom, dad, and the little girls were left to fend on their own. But not to worry folks, they found refuge at the coolest, most extravagent party of their lives!

The party's theme was Pirates & Wenches....or in Tim's term "wrenches". You like the attire?

The party had jolly jumps (one of which was even a pirate ship), a personal petting zoo made complete with a zebra/donkey and other exotic animals, a Caribbean-type band, catered food, and.....

.....Free Ice Cream!! It was amazing! So many choices...and I hadn't seen an ice cream truck in years! I was always deprived of that as a child...


The party gang: Timmy, Jason, Kenz, and myself. It was adorable how much the boys got into the whole sherade. They even visited the local thrift store for added accessory emphasis. I love my little pirates!

Thank you Dods' family for the best Fourth of July party known to Temecula! <3

Please tell Kenz that her hair looks HOT!...and she can thank me for that. (Just giving myself credit where credit is due ;) I think I need to be a little bit more humble, what do you think?
