Fun and Games

My hubby and I made a photo booth out of PVC pipe and a sheet.  I cut up scraps of red, white, and blue material to make a banner to stretch across the backdrop.  Tutorial to come :).

We wanted everyone to mingle and get involved, so what better way than having games with prizes?  We had ring toss in the pool, where we stuck a ring toss game on an awesome patriotic inner tube I found at Target.  Then, we had Balloon Darts.  Jordan made a dart board with balloons that mimicked the American Flag.  Lastly, we had an intense game of bingo!  Everyone had a blast and the winners walked away with $10 to In-N-Out!

There you have it!  Our 4th of July BBQ was a success!  We had so much fun that I can't wait for next year!
