Belated 4th Photos

We had a lovely 4th of July...
We started the morning with the yearly parade downtown.
Samuel literally ran in circles for 20 minutes before the parade started.
I loved seeing my family stand for the passing of the flag!
I love that our nation is free...but we must remember that we have an obligation to honor that freedom and not take it for granted.
It is also imperative that our children learn about the history of our freedom...and we are the ones who bear that responsibility to teach them.

The boys waiting for the parade to begin.

The girls (plus one...Hi Karina!). Our niece was here for the week including the 4th and Nathan's baptism.

We too had a very patriotic, family day - Ward breakfast, children's parade, movie, baseball game, fireworks and watermelon.

It missed the magic of my youth because of the lack of caps, black snakes and sparklers.
