Each year on the Sunday closest to the Fourth of July our church has a patriotic church service and then a picnic after church. This year since the Fourth of July fell on a Sunday, that special service and picnic were held on the Fourth of July.
Over the past few years it has been so hot that we would eat and head home for the air conditioning. This year the weather was gorgeous! I think our high was upper 70's or low 80's. It was so nice to be able to sit, relax, visit, and enjoy the sunshine into the afternoon.
Our friends John and Kim and their boys were back in Idaho visiting family. John's sister was gracious enough to open up her home for a BBQ. Once we returned from the church picnic and had a short rest/nap time we headed out of town. The kids had a great time playing outside and they really wore themselves out! Of course the highlight of the evening was fireworks. The kids enjoyed throwing the pop rocks and playing with the sparklers. The big boys really enjoyed putting on a great fireworks show for all of us.
