I hope that all our family and friends scattered throughout the country enjoyed the 4th as much as we did. I am very proud of the country that I live in and the freedoms that I am allowed by living in this country. There are great men and women who have given their lives to allow us what we have today. May our Heavenly Father bless those men and women who are fighting for those who cannot do it themselves. I hope that they will be reunited with their families very soon.
It was a very busy 4th, but it was a great one. This is the first year that we have been able to have Paul at the 4th of July parade with us. He is usually working on the 4th so this was a rare treat for us. We caught the parade with family and friends. My dad and mom, our family, my sister Tiffany's family and my good friend Kristen and her daughter Jossalyn. After the parade we headed to my parents house for some Bar-B-Que and fireworks in the evening. Cameron had to warm up to the idea, but Madeline was enjoying every minute of it. I really got some great pictures this year.
