Happy Independence Day

We celebrated the fourth of July with swimming and a BBQ at my parents' home. The kids love to get together with their cousins and just play. Grandma and Grandpa Belt were able to make it which was great. We love to visit with them. The food was good but the company was better! Matthew slept through most all of it but was able to enjoy a bit towards the end. Everyone had a good time and were ready to watch fireworks when we left.

We headed over to the Sunbowl to enjoy the evening festivities. Steph kept all the older kids busy with a game of Uno and the rest of us kept the younger ones busy with Otter pops until the fireworks started. As usual the fireworks were great and the mountain caught on fire! It must be a tradition or something cause every year that mountain is on fire shortly after they start lighting the fireworks even with all the watering by the firemen! We are so thankful to live in this great nation. We have been so blessed by our freedoms and the sacrifices of so many brave souls keeping those freedoms alive! We thank God for blessing us to be part of this great country!
