God Bless America!

We enjoyed a fun, but soggy Fourth of July celebration.
On the evening of the 3rd we hosted some friends for popsicles, glow sticks, fireflies, and sparklers before heading to the airport parking garage to watch the big fireworks display... from a distance.


 On the morning of the 4th the boys and Jon participated in the local parade with the Cub Scouts. It was rainy and dreary, but they had a blast squirting everybody with water guns anyway. I got to cower under my umbrella and then get royally squirted by them.

We should have known it would be a rainy day, because - along with another family - we had reserved the shelter at the pool and planned a big pool party for lots of family and friends! Unfortunately, it rained - mostly lightly - most of the afternoon. But fortunately we had a big shelter, the kids didn't mind swimming in the rain, and hardly anyone else even came to the pool. We had great food and everyone seemed to have a good time despite the weather.


Most importantly, we prayed and talked about what a blessing it is to have the freedoms we have in America.... and how important it is for us to defend those freedoms, especially in today's world. May God continue to bless America and may we always enjoy the freedoms upon which our nation was founded.
