4th of July

Well the 4th of July is over and summer is in full swing! I had a great 4th celebration, with family and friends. Parade with my son Mark and his little family, the little girls were so fun to watch as the parade passed by. Emma's little softball team rode the fire truck in the parade. They are the champions for their age group. Mat and Melanie coached the team. My Jared (Jarbug) rode high atop the fire truck, proud as could be. They all looked so cute. And Mark's little girls Sara, Zada and Maya could hardly wait to see Emma and Jared on the fire truck. Small town USA is what the 4th of July is about. Parade, park, and BBQ's and fireworks is what 4th of July means to me. I love it! One of my favorite holidays. . . . I will have pictures posted later showing the fun day. Later in the day I went to Jim and Sharon Jensen's for their annual 4th of July BBQ. It was great, and I really appreciate them inviting me. I was with Emily and Joel and Andrew. Sharon is Russ' mother. In the evening I was at Mat's having dutch oven dinner, and a great time visiting with friends and family. Watched fireworks with Mark and his little crew. . . Blake was busy all day with Gina's family from Arizona so I didn't get to see him. Saturday I spent recovering from all of my celebrating. Sunday was church, and my cousin Louise invited me to have dinner with her and her family. I love to be at Louise's house, she is so talented and fun, and a great cook! Love visiting with her and Heather. It was delightful. . . . I sometimes get feeling real "down" and then I have to look around and see how blessed I am. I am surrounded with wonderful people. People I cherish and love. I can't imagine my life without them. Watch for the pictures to later. KJ
