Happy Birthday, USA!

We love watching the fireworks that a local church does every year near the 4th. We met my brother's wife and kids, Nicole and Natalie, and Grandmommy to watch the show.

Jack wasn't sure about the noise. Here he is trying to find some safety in Grandmother's lap.

Cute boys!

Enjoying the show...they moved closer and closer as the display progressed

We had a FABULOUS 4th with lots of great company and great food! We invited friends over to the Milam's house on the lake to enjoy swimming and boating. We had a great crowd...at one time I think I counted 13 kids in the pool. Brandon pulled skiiers, kneeboarders, and tubers until dark. Then we loaded up and watched all the fireworks around the lake from the water. It was an awesome day and I'm sick that my camera didn't join the fun!

Happy Birthday, USA! We are blessed to live in such a wonderful country!
