July-We are free! Part 1

This month always reminds us of how truly free we are...We are so grateful to the men who have sacrificed in ways we could never understand for us to enjoy the freedoms we do.  We are so very blessed to be Americans!

 We have gotten to spend lots of time with the Laytons this summer...lots changing in their lives..and ours.  It has been good to be together and lean on each other!

Preparing for our big Fourth of July show!!

 Caleb is ready.......

 This year we had more people than blessed to have family and friends to celebrate with!

 Here are a few faces enjoying the firework show outside.....

 Time for sparklers....
 What a fun night it was!!!!

 Roller skating and ski ball with the Herrings!

 Mammi asked if the girls could spend the night one night in July and they were busy little bees....
The next morning they invited all the ladies of the family to a brunch and they served US!!  Thank you, Mammi, for always thinking of others and passing this on to our girls! 
Such a precious morning!!

 After the brunch, sweet April, sat on the floor for over an hour and helped these girls put together the race track for the boys!  So patient!
