The 4th of July

Today was a most unusual day.  It started out beautifully sunny, but that soon faded to dark ominous clouds, which dumped rain drop after rain drop.  Not extremely inspiring for a day of picnicing and fireworks (which we can not fire off here in Soldotna), so instead we stayed inside and cleaned a little, played with puzzles, and visited with friends as they popped in and out throughout the afternoon.  It was a slow paced day, and most relaxing! I just wanted to express how extremely greatful we are to all the soldiers that have served, are serving, and will serve this country and protected the freedoms that we often take for granted.  Thank you for another year of service and protection.
Tomorrow is camps' country fair  for family camp, which we try to have on the 4th but sometimes does not always work out.  There are lots of games for the kids to do and the parents can sit and talk with friends and family.  Chad will be roasting two pigs for 12 hours(starting at 3am), as well as cooking the hamburgers and hot dogs for our family campers to enjoy for dinner!  Hopefully we will have a rain free day and I promise to take lots of pictures!
