Happy 4th of July!

Our morning started out with a pancake breakfast and flag ceremony at the church. The cub scouts participated in it and Noah carried the American flag. It was the first time he ever did anything like that and we were so proud of him. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of that. Several people were asked to stand and tell what freedom meant to them. As I sat and listened to them I thought about how proud I am to be an American and how blessed I am to live in this country where we are allowed so many freedoms.

After breakfast there was a parade for the kids and it was extra special because their cousins Sam, Lucy, and Molly were there to be in it too. Mom had the kids while Mark and Tonia were doing the Peach tree Road Race.

The rest of the day included lunch with Mom, Mark and Tonia and all the kids at Stevi B's. And, then a cookout with friends later in the afternoon. Lots of fun... Happy 4th of July!!
