4th of July

We are #1!!
4th of July this year was really nice- nothing spectacular, but still fun :) We started the day attending the Ward Independence Day breakfast.

The forecast called for intermittent rain showers. Around noon there was a light drizzle. Over the next 6 hours it steadily increased to actual rain. We were invited to a friend's house for a BBQ (she made scrumptious ribs!). Luckily the men set up a canopy over the tables so we could still eat outside. By 7 it had reduced to a drizzle again.

Their kids are my kids' ages, so they all had fun, while the adults ate too much- it was so yummy!

We had planned on driving somewhere to find fireworks, but the cloud cover looked so low and the kids were content playing with each other, so we just hung around after eating until bedtime.

(ALL muddy)

(this picture cracks me up... see the hand sticking out of Inga's side? You can only tell it's my sister Anja because of the blond ponytail sticking out of Inga's head)

(ok, so the dress is from Mexico... she insisted on wearing it)

Here are just some more pictures taken throughout the day... I can't help myself.
