Let Freedom Ring

Happy 4th of July! I know it is a few days late, but it's never too late to blog about our holiday weekend.

We spent the 4th in the Delta. I was off on Friday, so Nick and I were able to leave Thursday afternoon and arrive in time for dinner. We had a great time with family. We enjoyed good food, drinks, and conversation. We also had a great time on the lake on July 3rd. We had to leave on the real 4th because I had to work Monday. However, we made record time driving home, and we still had time to lie by the pool.

I managed to take a few photos of the weekend.

Mollie had to make sure everyone was wearing enough sunscreen.

Nick showing his skiing skills.

A shot of our crowd.

My mom and Mac (her great-nephew).

Charlie and Nick starting up the grill.

Daddy finishing up dinner.

We also came up with a new drinky-drink (more to come on this later).

Even though we missed the celebration on the 4th, we were happy to celebrate it on the 5th with these guys. Our Monday night Bible study took a break from our study and came to hang out at the pool. We were happy to have them, and we enjoyed some good hamburgers, hot tamales (brought from Greenville), and watermelon.

God Bless America!
