What a great 4th of July weekend for us! It started with the boys and I taking a trip with some friends to pick blueberries. We went to Edom, TX (near Tyler, TX) to a pick-your-own farm. Evan had picked blueberries before at my dad's house, but this was some serious picking - and hot! They both did great, though, and seemed to have fun. I taught them to sample as we picked to make sure that they were getting good ones. I think they liked that part.
But the best part was getting blueberry ice cream and blueberry lemonade after we were done.
On Sunday we went to church, and then spent the afternoon at home. That night we went to see some fireworks on Main St. The boys got to do some fun stuff, too - like bounce houses and spinning wheels for prizes. The fireworks show was nice, but they were tired and thirsty by that time. So Steve and I enjoyed the fireworks more than them, but not as much as we normally would have. ;-) There was a good variety in the show and some different kinds than you normally see. I still give the night a thumbs up!
On Sunday we had a little party at our house for some of our community group friends from church. Only 2 families were able to come, but we had a good time! The kids had a lot of fun playing together, and the adults were able to enjoy some grown-up conversation. Of course, there was a lot of food, too.
What's more American than baseball ...
and Apple Pie?!? (and strawberry and blueberry pie)
I am a mother of two precious (and crazy) boys and a wife to a wonderful husband. I like to scrapbook, but don't always have the time. This is my virtual scrapbook to record the highs, lows, and in-betweens of our journey on Earth.
The journey is important, but only as it makes us more like Christ and gets us closer to our forever home.
