Independence Day!

Happy 4th of July! Hope you are all enjoying the holiday weekend wherever you are! It was beautiful weather here and the weekend looks to be just as nice. Dave spent the day golfing in the Bartlett Open with some friends and the rest of us joined up later for an early meal at the golf course with all the other wives and kids and parents. It was fun, as there are so many young kids anymore! We were joking that we used to all spend the day at the golf course...the guys would all golf and us gals would hang out all afternoon in the, we all stay home to let our kids nap and are lucky to get there by 4pm! Ha! Boy, things change quick huh? :) We wouldn't change it for anything though.

After a nice afternoon we came home and hung out at home. Jaxon is not sure about fireworks still and really did not want to go. We watched them on TV from New York and DC. Uncle Augie & Aunt Katie came over and spent the night and grandma and grandpa McIntosh came over for some sparkler action and dessert. Jaxon fell into bed very late filled with fun & laughter from the day. Austin was a trooper and enjoyed the day in lots of different arms :)

I can't help but think of the blessing it is to live in America. There are so many wonderful things about being born here and raising our family here. It truly is a gift when you think of all the places God could have placed you. We're so thankful for this Independence Day and everything it represents. We especially thank all the men & women who have and are at this moment fighting for everything America stands for. God Bless the USA!
