Independence Day

We had a barbecue at Anthony's parents' to celebrate the 4th.  There were lots of people, tons of food, and we had great time.  The kids played outside and ran around, while the adults stayed inside and visited and tried to keep cool.

In the evening, Aaron, Cheri, Skye, and Jared came over to our house, and helped us unload the rest of our U-Haul.  It was over 90* during the day, and then it started pouring down rain just as we began unloading the truck.  We got drenched, and it was so humid.
Because Minot has an Air Force Base, and there are so many military families around, you can imagine the celebration that goes on for Independence Day.  It's so awesome to see the fireworks and patriotic displays all over the city.  The sky was lit up in every direction with fireworks that went on for hours.  It was pretty incredible to see! The kids sat outside and watched the fireworks on the porch in the warm rain.  They had a great time.... and so did the mosquitoes!
I'm so thankful for the freedom we have, and hope everyone had a safe and happy Independence Day!
