Our Church Loves America

phone3 281Our Pastor loves America!

We celebrate big!

I went to church really early before our America Celebration, while they were still setting up and staked out my spot!

phone3 283phone3 284  phone3 282Then I went home, did some chores, made dinner, served it, then took a ride down to church.

A few other people had gotten there by the time I got back.

So we kind of picnicked with them too.

Processed with RookieYeah.

Standing room only.

So glad I had my spot already because they were turning people away it was so crowded!!

Lucky me, my friend who just started attending our church was actually sitting right next to us!!

Bonus!!

Worship began, which was incredible, and my littlest got her praise on!!

phone3 288Poor girl, this is all she could see too.

phone3 287Didn’t stop her from singing her heart out though!!

Aimee had fun running into a friend…

phone3 289…the fife and drum was not their favorite.

Look at Rebecca’s reaction to the fife.

phone3 290They just don’t really appreciate the old stuff yet.

That is okay.

Our Pastor started an amazing sermon that ended with fireworks!

(Last year our church accidentally caught the freeway on fire with the fireworks, so we were all surprised we were given a permit to try them again!!)

Here they are!!

We came home and put this on our chalk board.

Fun with Friends

We had our first “swim” play date of the season.

Since my girls don’t swim, purely by choice, it was more of a wade in the water day.

Look how decked out my baby is for the water though!

011 Dude, life vest and goggles just to get a little wet!!

She cracks me up!!

She actually with Mommy trying not to be overly protective, took herself all the way around the pool holding on to the sides.

I was impressed!010

We did picnic by the pool too.

Strawberries, grapes and pb&j, you can’t beat that!!

Oh and orange juice with frozen strawberries!! Yummy!!
