Fourth of July

We had a great 4th of July weekend. We didn't have many plans, and it was really nice to have a slower paced weekend. We went swimming several times and had a fun evening out at the Southlake Town Center to watch the fireworks. The kids all loved the fireworks and had fun seeing some of their friends out there. We sat with our old neighbors, the Amlongs, and it is always fun to be with them. We went out to eat before, and Will got a little silly with his corn on the cob. I promise that we don't encourage playing with our food, but he did something, and Ray and I started laughing, and then he couldn't stop and we couldn't stop. One of the highlights of 4th of July is always the patriotic service at church. The music is always beautiful and is such a great reminder to appreciate the freedom we have in America and the incredible freedom we have as Christians.
