Family Fourth of July 2017

We had another wonderful Independence Day holiday with Joshua's family this year. We love getting together and being squished into Joshua's sister's house for a few days! I love seeing the kids playing with their cousins, along with all of the other familiar 4th of July traditions.
 The first night we were together, we went to the drive-in and saw "Despicable Me 3." It was pretty silly! The kids liked being in the back of the two vans together, and the little girls were in their jammies so they could jump into their beds when it was finished!
 We watched the parade in our favorite small mountain town. loved the big wheeled bike...
 Our friend and their 3 legged dog walked in the parade this year instead of their usual family band float...
Our family waiting for the parade to begin...
 During the water fights, I saw these two guys with bald eagle hats, I thought they were funny!
 The four big kids were waiting for the water fights to start...
 In the evening, after dinner we snapped some family photos on the porch...
 Love those faces!
 Then while waiting for the fireworks, the kids played baseball, and we played the game, "Bean Boozled," where everyone got a jellybean that may have been either yummy or yucky. It was pretty fun to watch, I did not play. I didn't need to be sick! The fireworks were fabulous!

We were sad to go home the next day. We always love our family time, it goes by too quickly! It's hard to believe that this was a month ago, the summer is flying by!

Galatians 5:1
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

2 Corinthians 3:17
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Ephesians 3:12
In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
