We had a great trip to Grandma and Grandaddy's house last Thursday until Tuesday!!
While traveling with Nate we really didn't do any big day trips... just spent time together - some swimming, eating, trips to Ritas, a little shopping and visiting with Gran-Grandma:)
Here are some of my favorite pictures;)
The theme for You Capture is AMERICA:)
On the 4th we headed over to a local firework display... it was much more crowded than we expected... but they lived in a "military area" so we really shouldn't have been surprised!!
So while the 4th of July is about American Independence... I am always reminded of the freedoms we enjoy as Americans and the price of those freedoms.
But America is also about people from different walks of life being able to mingle and share moments together. On a very small scale, like our time in the football field waiting for the firework display....
there are my kids running around with all sorts of kids from all sorts of ethnic and economic backgrounds....
And after some "hard" playing and some waiting we heard and saw the booming of the fireworks. The celebration of our country....
** i was soo excited that the firework pictures came out;) Last year I constantly messed with my camera... this year:) WOW!! They came out much better than I expected since I didn't Andrea to ask about the settings;)
A HUGE thank you to Grandma and Grandaddy for allowing us to visit and terrorize their usually extremely tidy and clean house... I'm sure they will be finding evidence of kids for a couple of days!! We just always feel soo welcomed and are thankful for their graciousness and patience with ALL of us... yes, even the hyper rascals, fuss infant and tired Momma;)
