happy 4th

today was a lazy rainy day. to keep the kids busy, we pulled out the rainy day craft kit. they colored beads, made bracelets and necklaces, and drew lots of pictures.

then uncle jay joined us for dinner and we gorged ourselves on burgers and brats.

the rain stopped just in time for fireworks. and luckily, we didn't have to go very far. the neighbors got together and we watched a nice show from the front porch.

the kids are snuggled in their beds, tired and happy from another fun fourth.

thank you soldiers for keeping our country free and safe. happy birthday america!

Nana and Poppy went to uncle Rob's for the 4th. We had tons of food and drinks. Everything was great. At 7pm we dashed inside to see Mandee on t.v. She is in Mainstage and the group opened with dance and song for the evening festivities on chan 6. She looked awesome! Well glad all of you had a great day too! Love Nana
