Red, White, and Blue

We had a wonderful holiday weekend. A ran the Firecracker 5K in City Park on Saturday morning and Charla and I enjoyed cheering him on. My parents arrived for the weekend around lunchtime. You can bet Charla spent the weekend being held and loved on!! We stayed around home all day and grilled out hamburgers and hot dogs for dinner. That night we drove to a hill a couple of miles away from City Park and watched the fireworks from there. We woke Charla up for the outing so she was in her jammies. We're not sure if she actually saw the fireworks but she liked looking in their general direction!

Yesterday we stopped for donuts on our way to church. After church Charla took a nap so we went out for a`late lunch once she got up. My parents left for home late in the afternoon and we just hung out at home, enjoying the rest of the weekend.

We are so proud to live in the USA and are grateful to all the soldiers who have fought to make it such a great country!
