A week ago today was Independence Day.
It started early at our ward’s annual flag raising ceremony where Dave was the keynote speaker. He did great!
We then got down to business and cleaned the house from top to bottom. Well, Dave and I cleaned while the munchkins splashed around in the pool and Conner read. Harry Potter update: he start Book 5 yesterday – WOW!!
That night we enjoyed hosting a family get-together/BBQ!! We were so happy that Ali could join us.
And we were some of the lucky few who live within the authorized area to set off fireworks.
We started with the annual tank battle, where Conner kept a very accurate score.
And of course Mr. Logan, who claimed he would watch fireworks when he was 4, changed his mind. We even tried using Dave’s flying headset to drown out the noise, but it was no use and he spent the night inside with Grandma watching from the window :-)!
