4th of July At Our House

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

Our 4th of July was great! We had several families from our church over for a big cookout in the afternoon; and then we all headed over to the football stadium at the highschool to watch fireworks. All in all, it was a busy but exciting day ~ now I'm looking forward to next year!


Jonathan gave some of the girls horse rides, which was fun.

Miss Bethany, looking very patriotic!
Since we had so many people, we had everyone eat outside on the porch. The weather was beautiful so everyone really enjoyed themselves.


~Three lovely young ladies ~


Kayla's mom sewed matching skirts for all the girls of their family - isn't it pretty??


Little Jasmine with her mom.....looking SO cute!


A rare family photo. We all bought $3 patriotic shirts at Wal-Mart for the 4th; and most of the families that came wore them, as well!


Most of the children and adults went for a wagon ride together in the afternoon.


Courtney and Kayla right before the fireworks started!


Me...Rachel.



Isaac was really afraid of the fireworks, since this was his first time seeing them! He clung to Mom, Courtney, and me the whole time. One of the girls graciously donated a blanket for him to hide under while he was on my lap. Mom had to pass him to me after a while because he was nearly cutting off her breathing via arms around the neck!! Nevertheless, he looked very cute in his patriotic shirt, and it was a special day since it was his first Independence Day as an American citizen.


Thank you A, C, R, and D families for such great fellowship! We loved having you over and look forward to next year......hopefully little "Wu" will be joining us then, too!

Aren't the $3 shirts from Wal-mart great?! We each have a white one and then a few of us have a red one too hehe:)
