We spent the 4th at home. Michael had a parade that morning. It was rainy and wet so we stayed in. Makenna played with the neighbor girl and I did some cleaning. For lunch I took the kids up to the ranch. They were grilling hamburgers and the kids wanted to go. We also had watermelon and ice cream comes. After lunch we watched a movie while we waited for Michael to come home. By that time the sun was out and it had warmed up. We made ice cream and played outside for a while. Then we had our own BBQ in the yard. after supper we played kickball with the nieghbors. It was fun. I talked to Maddi on the phone while Michael visited with the neighbors. Then we went up to the barn to watch the fireworks. From the top of the hill where the barn sits we could see fireworks from 3 different towns. It was fun, especially for the kids.
