Our Fourth of July
What a difference a year makes! Last year Scott and I were in the hospital for much of our July Fourth so that I could have a D & C after a heartbreaking miscarriage. We never would have guessed then that our family would have been so blessed in just a year's time.
Here are some highlights from our day yesterday. In an effort to create some family traditions Scott and I bought an ice cream maker to make the wonderful treat. Thank goodness our friends had a machine of their own that we could use, because the "gel canister" model we bought just simply didn't do the trick. Oh well, we had wonderful food, peach cobbler, and ice cream nevertheless.
The Hays' family put on quite a fireworks display that even Elsie enjoyed. (Eli fell asleep much too soon to enjoy the fireworks.) Emily loved playing with Kori and Austin. And the rest of us enjoyed the seats on the lawn and the break from the heat.
I hope everybody had a great holiday with family and friends
