Independence Day

* * * * * * * * * *
Aaron Jr and I went with the Harkness family to the Kaysville parade. We had a good time.

Sophia and Aaron / Sophia / Aaron, Malia, Grace / kids scrambling for candy.

Uncle Steve and Aaron Jr arm wrestling.

Aaron wanted to show his photography skills, so he took a few photos. This was one of them...

... and this was another one.

We went on a hike with my family to Donut Falls.

It was really early in the morning, so I am not sure that I even look awake yet...

Dad and Mom on the hike.

This is everyone who was on the hike with us that day. What a group.

These are some little fireworks that my brother, Mark did for some of us. They were fun to watch. Thanks Mark and Suzy.

My favorite was this one... not only because it was beautiful, but because the name of this firework was 'Happiness Fountain'. Could it get any better than that? Doesn't it just scream HAPPINESS!?!?!?!?!

I am so grateful for our country. I am grateful for the men and women who have served so bravely and so valiantly to preserve the freedoms and the liberties that we are blessed with and that we enjoy.

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
~ 2 Cor. 3:17

Let us all pray that we can keep the Spirit of the Lord in this country so that we continue to be blessed with liberty. Its getting a little scary. Just sayin'...
