We had a very nice 4th even though we missed our daddy this was 2 years in a row he missed the 4th! However we were able to have a nice time with friends. I belong to a local moms group in the area which had a party for the members and their families. The kids had a blast swimming and playing on the water slide. Me and Ethaniel did not go swimming but did enjoy just being outside and socializing. Their back yard was the coolest yard I have ever seen. It was so pretty and green with a little pond and beautiful trees and went on forever(the cool thing was they still lived in a sub division). I would love to have a yard just like it some day...A Girl can Dream!! Ethaniel was so very cute and brave about the fireworks they set off. They were as good as the ones last year that the City of Yuma puts on...lol. I took a few pictures of the kids before we headed out the door and then the rest are from the party. Watching the fireworks reminded me again of how great it is to be an American.
