4th of July Fun

We had so much fun this Independence Day. We had a swimming and BBQ party at our house and then went to RAWHIDE, a "western town" near our home, that evening to watch fireworks.

We've gone here many times before, but this was Lexi's first trip.

Sam loves to pose for pictures.

Josh does not.

Sam visited the jail house.

Was it Sheriff Josh who made the arrest?

Then, Sam learned roping skills from a real live cowboy.

Josh tried his hand at being a cowboy as well.

He's very serious about his work.

The highlight of the evening was the buffalo show. We even saw the buffalo (and the rider) jump through a ring of fire. Sorry we didn't get a picture of that.

Then we enjoyed the fireworks show as a grand finale to a fabulous day. We had so much fun with Lori, Matt & Shayla hanging out all day. We are grateful for all those who've gone before us to ensure a land where we are free and those who continue to fight for our freedom today. Happy Independence Day!
