Happy Independence Day!!!

I am working on a post about our nation's forefathers,  but it is taking a long time to do all my research!

So, in the meantime, here are some fun pictures of our 4th of July festivities from yesterday and today.  We are so very blessed to be American citizens! God has blessed our nation.  May our nation always praise and glorify Him.

 Smoke bombs!

They love these things.  Can't figure out why...

 Fun popping thingys!

 Ben was going to march in the parade with the his Gymnastiks Unlimited float...but then he got too nervous.

 They give away CANDY at these parades?!

 My red, white and blue kids at the parade. : )  (Jacob is away at camp this week, and Cassandra was working.)

 We had friends over for dinner...fireworks hotdogs, and red, white and blue snacks. : )

 We even had a patriotic drink!  Kool aid ice cubes in 7 up. : )

 After dinner...a magic show!

 by Joshua the Magnificent!

  And we made fun t-shirts!

 Then...some backyard fireworks with our friends!

They were a hit!

 Even though many of them were from the dollar store and looked like this...; )

 This little American girl loved them!

 Then we went and saw the real ones!  (Sarah wasn't really out of it.  She just liked the blanket when we first laid it down.)  ; )

But we hadn't been on the road long, when it got very quiet in the backseat. : )

We had a wonderful Independence Day.  We are so thankful!!

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD...Psalm 33:12
