A Great 4th of July!

We went to Joel’s parents’ house for the fourth of July this year. We had a great dinner with many members of his family. Joel’s family is spread out so much that it is hard to get all of his siblings together. Most of his family was able to make it, so we had a great time visiting with them and just playing with the nieces and nephews.

Once it started to get dark, we got out some sparklers for the kids to keep them entertained until we were able to light off some bigger fireworks. Joel and his friend Phil drove to the Indian Reservation on Saturday morning to buy some fireworks for the evening. They did a great job picking out fireworks and put on a good show that evening.

We really had a lot of fun with his family. Joel was sad to say good-bye to his brothers and sisters that live far away, and cannot wait until they all get together again.

HAPPY 4th of JULY!!
