It was the Fourth of July and the Parr Family and Rydinger family were planning another barbecue this year but this time it's in the Rydinger's house. They invited their friends and families to the barbecue. Since their backyard is big they had their barbecue outside and a perfect view of the fireworks. Like always the men were doing the grilling, the women were talking, and the kids were playing and talking
"Alright men how do you want your meats done?" Mr. Rydinger said.
"Medium rare." Bob said.
"Well done." Lucius said.
"Rare." Mr. Rydinger said.
"I say we do it all kind. Medium rare, well done, and rare."
"Alright." Bob said.
"Fine by me." Lucius said as the men started cooking.
With the women they were talking about their husbands and their children.
"So. How's Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack Helen?" Mrs. Rydinger said.
"Good. Violet and Tony's relationship is hitting off. I mean look." The women looked at Violet and Tony holding hands while Tony kissed her on the cheek.
"Aww." The women said loud enough that Violet and Tony heard and made them blush but smiled.
"See. A great relationship."
"What about you Mrs. Rydinger?"
"Tony's okay. Tony can't stop talking about Violet. And he's is all about archery. He is a good multitasker." Mrs. Rydinger said.
"What about you Honey?"
"I don't have children. They freak me out. And just thinking of birth is disgusting."
With Violet and Tony's friends they won't stop talking about Violet and Tony's relationship.
"You two are sweeter than a honey custard with powered sugar." Kari said.
"Yeah. And better than your last girlfriends." Jake said.
"Yeah." Violet said under her breath.
"I bet your two are gonna last until senior year." Ruby said. "And if you two break up i'm gonna kill you."
"We don't want that." Tony said and blushed up.
With Dash and his friends they were too hyper so they were running around crazy until Dash got picked up by Bob and he said "Dash! Watch were you and your friends are going! You could have knocked over the grill and set a fire."
"Give the kid a break Bob. He's having fun." Mr. Rydinger said.
"Your right." He our Dash down and said"You go have fun Dash. But be careful. Okay?"
"Okay." He ran back to his friends as Bob smiled and went back to the grill.
A while later the men said "Food's ready!" Everyone went up to the grill and got the food.
After the food the sunset and the night came and fireflies came out and everyone was amazed. The fireflies came out and created a heart around Violet and Tony, Helen and Bob, Lucius and Honey, and Mrs. and Mr. Rydinger.
"You two ain't just lovers. Ya'll are soulmates!" Ruby said.
"I guess we are." Violet said as she and Tony kissed on the lips as everyone clapped.
"Now its time to sing the Star Spangle Banner." Everyone got up and stared singing.
"The Star Spangled Banner"
Oh, say can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
After the song they looked at the sky as the fireworks came out. They started cheering as some recorded the fireworks.
"This is beautiful." Helen said.
"It really is." Bob said.
"These fireworks are amazing!" Dash as Helen and Bob laughed.
"I love these fireworks." Violet said.
"And I love you too Violet." Tony said and smiled.
"I swear. If you don't invite me to your wedding i'm gonna throw hands." Ruby said.
"I'll send you an invite Ruby." Violet said patting her shoulder.
"I love the fireworks." Lucius said.
"Me too." Honey said.
The fireworks lasted for hours and after the fireworks the party was still on.
Happy Fourth of July Everyone!
