Our 4th of July

Posting is no fun when your computer is 9 years old and slow as Christmas. It's just not worth the frustration most days. But it looks like there will be a Macbook Pro in my near future, so things should be picking up soon!

Here's a peek at our 4th of July. Dan was working (he is a company man- boss of the rig- down in San Antonio, TX now, working 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off).

My Mom and sister Becky and her family came in for the holiday. It's so fun finally having a house big enough to host guests! First we headed to the park for the Fireman's pancake breakfast fundraiser. There was a patriotic program, then I forced the kids to take a photo with me before I let them run off and play.

It went quite a bit like this:

Then I told them that as soon as they smiled good they could take off and start getting all-you-can-eat free snowcones. Worked like a charm!

(Started this post like 2 months ago. It's never gonna get finished, so I'm just posting it as-is.)

Dear Sue, posting something is always better than posting nothing at all.
The last picture is wonderful!! Sweet moments to cherish in the future!
My mother always tells me: "with kids you should do whatever it works", bribery and even little lies sometimes.
