PaPa Brawley and his four grandsons on July 4th, 2020.

By Bonnie Brawley

We have had a 4th of July barbecue for family and friends for over 40 years. Another event cancelled because of COVID-19. 

Our daughter and family in Spokane (Jason, Stephanie (Landes), Alec and Josh Barthell) have property and a trailer at Priest Lake, ID. 

Our daughter and family in East Wenatchee (Shaila (Brawley), Shaine, Prater, and Ethan Brookover) also have a trailer. 

Since we all have trailers, it was a perfect way to distance from each other. We had all been very careful during the past months. So, off we went.

When the boys were very young, they wore Old Navy t-shirt that marked the year. They decided they had out grown that phase years ago. 

This year Stephanie found marked-down 2020 shirts. The boys pretended to be unhappy, however they wore them proudly. PaPa Brawley brought one of his old shirts and posed with his grandsons. (Two 16 years old, two 18.)

We barbecued hamburgers and hot dogs and built a fire.  

One of the residents at Priest Lake lights fireworks annually over the lake. It lasted 40 minutes and was spectacular.

It was wonderful to be together. One only needs to be creative to share the “Good Life.”

The Brawleys have lived in the Wenatchee Valley most of their lives and both are retired from Chelan County PUD.
