Happy 4th :)

{impromptu photo shoot before church in our red, white, and blue outfits}

Our 4th of July weekend was kept pretty low key. We had intentions of going to festivities but they did not happen due to the fact that our children decided it would be a great idea to wake up early Saturday morning and not take naps... However, we did enjoy our day today, which is actually the 4th anyways. I don't know, but there is always so uplifting about singing "American" songs in church that I love. I feel so patriotic and proud to live in a country where we have freedom and opportunities. It's so easy to see the negative in day to day life, that we, or at least I, often to stop and enjoy the life that I have. For example, we have great friends who so willingly came over for dinner after a last minute offer at church today. It's great that we are able to spend holidays with people we care about and enjoy one another's company. In all, our weekend was a wonderful, low key, mostly relaxing, family filled holiday. Plus, I'm pretty sure we get tomorrow off work!
