Today is the 4th of July and I am continually reminded of the many freedoms and privileges we have to live in America!

We have big plans with cousins, aunts, uncles, and a few friends! I think it’s gonna be a pool party, cookout, and fireworks kind of day!

Here’s our menu:

Brats, burgers, hotdogs, cheddarwursts, hog salad (best ever), baked beans, potato salad, veggies, fruit pizza, jello pretzel salad, and who knows what else for dessert! And, we cannot forget---WATERMELON, complete with a seed spitting contest.

What about you? Are you enjoying the day with family and friends or are you gonna just relax on your own!

My little ones have enjoyed a few extra projects around the house with their Daddy. They LOVED helping him clean the van inside and out. Pretty sure they enjoyed getting wet the most! Love them all! misc 1006misc 1003

Remember to thank the Lord for our freedom today even amidst your busy, fun schedules!  misc 1004 misc 1005
