Fun on the Fourth

originally posted at

Early on the third we enjoyed the tradition of watching the hot air balloons.  This year, Brendan was much more aware of what was going on…and a Tony the Tiger balloon made an appearance.



On the morning of the fourth, we went to a neighborhood breakfast.  Then we drove over to our church and helped clean, since Adam had volunteered our family to do so.  But, the real fun began at Grandpa Stone’s house.  The kids love Grandma and Grandpa.  They love throwing rocks in the stream behind his house.  And they all have a good time in the hammock.  This year they even had a race to see who could roll down the hill the fastest.  The food and company was great.  So many cousins were there because Jen and Joel were blessing their baby Breanna on July 5th.  We, of course, took some family pictures.






So, there are more pictures.  I will put the rest of them on my facebook page if anyone wants to see them.  The family crazy pictures and the kid crazy-face pictures are worth the time.

Later, we went to Nana and Grandad’s house and the kids were able to ride a horse.  We then had an amazing barbeque…where it is our family’s tradition to pretend like we didn’t just have dinner at Grandpa’s.  So, we ate dinner again.  Then we went out front and set off fireworks and the kids played with glow sticks.  It was a beautiful day.
