July 4th - Our Town

We hosted our first fourth of July party here this year (actually the third, because that's when our town does a big fireworks display!)  We had part of each of our families here and BBQ'd, and had home-made ice cream.  We had an amazing view of the fireworks display right from our lawn!

The next day we celebrated again, at Mom & Dad's!  We have a long-time 4th of July tradition that was upheld again this year: a large-scale outline map of the USA in chalk, on the driveway.  Everyone helps fill in landmarks, icons of historical significance, and fun places we've visited!

This one is turned sideways, somehow, but is representing a few things in our general part of the country!

And, of course, yummy and pretty desserts!
Melody is good at making use of spare moments and so is finishing up the birdie mobile for their expected little one.  So cute!

Hi Angela, So Mel is pregnant-how exciting. Did you know Kim is expecting #5 in Sept.? Loved seeing the family-especially your mom and dad. I can see you are all so close(to both sides), such a godly example. Say hi to your mom for me and enjoy the rest of the summer.
Hugs, Noreen
