4th of July!!

We had such a great time celebrating America's birthday on Saturday.  Ben and I spent some time reading the Declaration of Independence and talking about what it means to have freedom!  It is such a great holiday.  Plus you get to have lots of fun.  We went over to Matt's Aunt Terri's house to swim and hang out with family.  The kids had so much fun!  They were the only ones brave enough to get in the cold water but they spent 5 hours playing and coming up with fun ways to come down the slide. 

 We then headed out to the Cabra family farm for some more patriotic fun.  The kids loved getting to play with their friends and eat some yummy pig that had been cooked in the ground.

 It started pouring down rain around 7:00 and we were hoping to get to see some fireworks but the rain washed it out.  Didn't dampen the kids fun because they just ran around in the rain with glow sticks and had a blast.
