4th of July 2012

Isn't this little Uncle Sam too cute?
We had fun celebrating Independence Day.  Our friends hosted a big party (open to our whole church!) that they have done for years.  It's always "weather dependent" and we weren't sure if we'd end up celebrating at home in front of a good ol' patriotic movie since just the night before (and the whole week before!) it was pouring.  The sunshine arrived right on schedule.  It is said that summer doesn't start here in the good 'ol Northwest until July 4th.'s true.

But, summer has arrived!  The day was filled with fun things like face painting, cotton candy, tug o' war, sack races, delicious food, and an old fashioned cake walk.

Captain America's shield...good enough to eat!

This year Hannah made Captain America's shield for her cake in the cake walk. 
Once it's finally dark (around 10 pm) they have a terrific fireworks show.  On our drive home, we could see lots of other fireworks too.  That made a long drive a little more fun!
Today, we are plum tuckered out, but we had such a fun time.
Happy Birthday, America....The land of the free and the home of the brave.
