Not only is the 4th of July our nation's birthday, it's Thomas and I's wedding anniversary.
This year, we celebrated 12 years as man and wife.
|The free concert this year was BlackHawk.|
|This concert is so fun in the park, because Wyatt plays on the monkey bars...|
|and Ellie swings.|
|The boys relax in our lawn chairs.|
|The girls hang out on the picnic blanket.|
|We get to see my cousins and their kids.|
This is the back of Thomas's pickup with some of my cousin, Ruth's, kids (she has five kids).
|Ellie is only 3 months older than Elise.|
|My cousin, Ruth, and I (she is older than me, but I won't say how many years). |
We try to visit her family once a year.
It's always a treat when we get to see them more.
|Had to take one of the boys while they were looking, too.|
|We always have fireworks on our anniversary!|
