July 4th Recap

Thursday, July 7, 2011

I hate that my blog has been so neglected this summer. Chalk it up to having 3 kids at home all day and lot of activities going on. Thanks to all of you who have stuck with me here through thick and thin! Just wanted to share some images from our 4th of July. We have a tradition of visiting my Pawpaw who lives out in the country every 4th of July where we get together with lots of family and enjoy fun pool time and a potluck spread full of yummy home-cooked dishes. Definitely not good on the waistline but great for the soul! I hope you had a wonderful 4th as well!

On our way home the rain that had started earlier stopped and we saw this beautiful rainbow! For a while it looked as if we were headed right for it. Just a little reminder of God's promise.

We usually stay at my grandpa's for fireworks (they put on a pretty good display of their own out in the field behind their house) but since it started raining right after dinner we decided to make the hour and a half drive back home. The rain stopped on the way but the sky was still thick with clouds. We got back in town for the local firework display but the clouds were so thick and so low that the majority of the fireworks could not even be seen. The kids enjoyed listening to it anyway and we saw a few here and there as the clouds moved along! All in all we had a wonderful day celebrating with our family. We are so blessed to have the freedoms we do!

  2. teresa, I picked it up at Target 2 summers ago, but they were selling the same one this summer too except they added a bright yellow ring at the top.
