Happy 4th continued......

This was really cool; our friend Tim Harris who we met through our swim team flys the C-17 and was scheduled to do a fly over at the high school during the independance day festivities. We were all in the backyard when yup' here he comes in low and slow right over the house. It was so fun. We all (including the adults) started jumping up & down on the trampoline waving and yelling. It was really fun to see him go over. I can't wait to ask him Monday if he saw a bunch of crazy people on the ground waving up at him.
These kids have been together since they were just babes. It is so sweet to see them all grow and turn into the neatest kids. All FULL of personality mind you.
Little time jumping on the trampoline with dad never hurt anyone right? uuhhh, ya'.
Ryanne & I even got into the act. Perfect action shot Dan!
Then at 8:30 we loaded our girls into the Jeep with the doors and top off and went over by the high school and watched the fireworks show. We all piled into the back of Corey's truck & enjoyed the ooohhhsss and awwaaasss from the kids. I couldn't help but think that this by far was my very favorite 4th of July ever. Good friends, good food, and a warm summers night with not a care in the world. Ahhhh, good times.
