Cooper loved the sparklers.
Clayton's first 4th of July!
Clayton was dancing to the music!
I tried to take a picture of all 3 kids in their cute 4th of July clothes (thanks Janet!). BUT, they were a little grouchy and no one would cooperate. So this is the result of that and it is really blurry. :(
We had such a fun day yesterday. We had a lazy day at home. A nice swim in the afternoon. Then, we went to Wellman with my dad. We had a fun time. The kids played and played. We got to listen to some great music from Lone Prairie, and enjoy a great fireworks display. The kids played with sparklers and Pa-pa got them some glow rings that were a big hit. The kids loved the fireworks, Clayton just watched and watched. Kenndall kept saying, "more, more!" and Cooper would say, "One more time?" It was cute.
Really, I think that July 4th is one of my favorite holidays. It is in the middle of the summer, there are no presents involved (not that I don't love Christmas, I do), it is laid back, there are lots of outdoor activites to do, and we get to celebrate the many freedoms that we have. I thank God that my children are growing up in a free nation, where they can be free to vote, speak, work, learn, love, live and worship. What a blessing and a great responsibility.
