July 4th Weekend

The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. There’s just something about the patriotism and pride that’s always so present and alive throughout our country and communities. Not that we shouldn’t feel patriotic every day of the year, but it is nice to have a day where everyone seems to come together and salute this great country and the men and women that have selflessly given their lives so we can live in the land of the free. Freedom is certainly not free, and we get to live in the land of the free because of the brave, and for that, I am thankful.

Plus, I love any excuse to don a red, white and blue color scheme;)

In all seriousness though, it’s important to me that Asher Wade start to understand the importance of these holidays and the reason why we celebrate, and I like planning outings and activities to make the holiday feel special and important. We enjoyed our little 4th staycation and a 4-day weekend. Other than spending lots of time outside and at the pool, we also attended a birthday party, attended the firework show on the river, spent the night in a hotel downtown, visited the local children’s museum, and just generally had a lot of family time.

On the afternoon of the 4th we delivered cupcakes to our various neighbors that have served our country. We have quite a few veterans in our neighborhood, and we are certainly very proud to know them.

Hope you had a wonderful July 4th as well!

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by the yoke of slavery. ~Galatians 5:1
