Another great Cowboy Campmeeting is history, with its scenery, trail rides, friends and fellowship. Note that I didn't say campfires, as they weren't allowed, but there was plenty of smoke coming and going, which was a little scary.

Cowboy Campmeeting is always around the 4th of July, so the years that it isn't over the 4th are few – and fun. We can have our Cowboy Campmeeting and our fireworks, too!
And our family time. Before the community show, we had a festive supper with my MIL, with corn on the cob, potato salad, (veggie) chik nuggets, chips with bean dip and salsa, those giant Bing cherries, and homemade ice cream. Then we walked it all off to get from where we parked to the fireworks venue and back.

Happy July from . . .
