We had a really nice 4th of July this year. The only thing missing was having Mike home with us. I love this picture of Julia with Grandpa, she gave the best smile of the day sitting with him! I took the kids to a pancake breakfast at the chuch then we went to daddy's fire station to say hello. The kids had to play on the engine for a while and then we drove to Bobi and Rich's house for swimming and a BBQ. The kids had so much fun seeing their cousins and eating homemade icecream. That night I took them to the local fireworks show and we even did a few sparklers together. It was a fun way to celebrate this great country we live in.
