Independence Day

I hope that everyone had an enjoyable day celebrating this great country we live in! Our Father in Heaven preserved this great country until these later days to help pave the way for the gospel. I am so grateful for all the freedoms that I have and that I can live in such a great nation!!! I am thankful for all of my rights! Today we celebrated pretty low key. Brian worked yesterday night so needed to sleep most of the day. We kept it low key so he could get some rest. All the kids got bathed and I was able to paint their faces for this evening. For dinner we had some hamburgers and hotdogs with french fries and corn. Easy dinner! We decided to go to the fireworks show in AJ again this year. This was the third year we have gone. It's pretty low key, they offer bounce houses for the kids and free watermelon. They also have vending as well. There is a live band that plays country. Tonight we got there perfect timing not too earlier but not overly crowded. The kids ran off as soon as we secured our spot. They enjoyed the bounce houses for sure!!! The fireworks came on at 9 and it was a 35 minute show!!! It was great!!! Also it did not take long at all to get to our truck and get home. All in all its been a wonderful night.  Happy 4th of July!!!
