We went to the 4th of July celebration at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base last night with our good friends the Williams. We had such a great time!
With 8 young kids between us, it was a lot of work to keep everybody happy...
Luckily, Jon came prepared as always with patriotic hats and enormous bubbles for our enjoyment.
My friend Jenn... (love that girl!!)
Dancing to the music...
Here was our attempt at a nice family picture... but it never seems to work out! Benny was particularly un-camera friendly at the time.
What a wonderful night... to be with family and friends, and to celebrate the goodness of God in raising up such a nation. I feel so blessed to live in this great country! In fact, I turned to Jon during the "fire-flies" as the kids call them, and whispered, "it doesn't get much better than this"... and I meant it.
Happy Independence Day!
