The 4th of July is one of my very favorite holidays. It always has been, and may be even more so with having recently gone through deployment. I am so thankful for our freedoms and for the men and women who have sacrificed so that my family may enjoy them.
We had a great day. My family came over to our house for barbecue. Initially, we were going to grill out burgers, but we had that whole e-coli beef recall in our state, so we opted to play it safe and get take-out from Corky's instead. I made brownie sundaes for dessert. It was all delicious. We had planned for lots of fun outdoors for the kids, but it sprinkled off and on, so we just had a good time indoors.
This was the most exciting event of the entire day...
This is how Evan spent most of the day...roughhousing with my dad. This picture makes me laugh because my dad's hair is messed up from all the playing.
E & EG were so tired from their big day, they didn't even get to see any fireworks. I have caught glimpses from neighbors shooting them. I don't know how the kids are sleeping through all the noise. They MUST be exhausted. I hope you had a happy and blessed 4th!
God bless America!
