July 4th

Our Fourth of July started at our church, bright and early Saturday morning.
We had a flag-raising ceremony, trumpet tunes, thoughts on our country, a parade by the kids, and a delicious breakfast.

We were so happy Grandpa could join us.

Then we went to our friends, Jon & Leah's for dinner, slip-n-slide, and fireworks.

I am so very grateful to live in this free land, and enjoy the blessings that I do. I am constantly grateful for the freedoms that we enjoy. I feel immensely blessed to live where and when I do.
