Happy Fourth of July!

{Erica, Jonathan and Paige working on their flag project}

We spent the evening with friends Cynthia and Jesse and their three little ones. We had the All-American cookout feast of burgers, hot dogs, chips, drinks, s'mores, popsicles and a really good Riesling for the adults. YUMMY!

The kids participated in a flag-making project consisting of a whipped cream flag background and then they used blue berries and strawberries to make the stars and stripes of the flag. Afterward, they ate it all up and went back several times making it over and over again.

Then we headed out to the driveway to watch a few fireworks across the street. All in all, it was a fun-filled day for the kids!

Looks like you had a fun time. We missed you all out at Camp Kreitzer. Looking forward to August 1st when we can all be together - although the noise level might be more than any of us can tolerate.
