Memory Lane

Everyone needs to play....

Everyone needs to play...This is Fun!
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember--it can be funny, weird, awkward, random, etc.!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

4th of July

Our view of the fireworks and incoming storm :)

Our beautiful baby girl right before we got dressed to go see fireworks!

We didn't do too much for the 4th of July since Nathan still had to work :( But, we did go and see fireworks! Shyanne was so excited she kept asking when daddy was coming home so we could go and see the fireworks. I'm glad she was so excited because the last 2 yrs. she wasn't so thrilled. Anyways we got all set up for the fireworks and there was a storm moving in so the wind was blowing and it was lightning like crazy! We waited over an hour for the fireworks to start and as we were about to leave they finally did! I don't remember if it rained that night, but the next Sat. we had the biggest monsoon storm it was so awesome!

Thoughts on the Fourth of July

Since tomorrow is the Fourth of July I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to my Heavenly Father for the country we have to live in. I am amazed at how a rag tag "army" (I use the world loosely because I don't think anyone was really trained in the art of warfare) was able to defeat the most powerful nation in the world. Hearing the different accounts, especially the one of George Washington riding across the battle field and not getting shot even though his cape had bullet holes in it, gives me goose bumps and reminds me that the establishment of this country was all part of the Lord's plan. He gave us this country, the "Land of the Free", so it would be possible to again establish his Kindgom here on the earth. I am grateful to my Heavenly Father for these things and so many more.
