4th of July weekend...

Freedom, Family time, friends, food, fishing, fun,

...Fourth of July !!!

We are so thankful for all we have here in America and for those who protect our freedom. Above all we thank our God in Heaven who created this magnificent place for us to enjoy.

It truly is America the Beautiful!

Even the handsome British guy in our house enjoys time off to indulge in some quality family time. We had a great afternoon fishing on Saturday, except Aidan couldn't catch a fish to save his life. Jason literally put the worm on for him and dropped the line in and before he could hand off the fishing pole there was a fish on...albeit the tiny, fun to catch ones. Can you say fish sticks?

It sprinkled a bit while we were there but, was a great time together.

I love watching the ripples on the water so I sat and enjoyed the peaceful stream as the three adventurers walked upstream and waded around.

Sunday we enjoyed the day with our regular church service, a long napping afternoon for Alayna then we were off to Uncle Ed & Aunt Jane's for a bar b que and some fireworks.

Alayna enjoyed being the center of attention. She was passed around like a hot firecracker and loved every minute of it. Here she is playing peek a boo with her cousin, Kara.

We all enjoyed the fireworks and had a great evening. Thankfully the rain held off and just as we finished our fireworks it started to rain!

We are looking forward to a lazy family day tomorrow.

We hope you had a wonderful weekend too!
