Independence Day 2014

Spending a nice time with my family today was such a blessing.  I'm sitting here feeling extremely grateful for the fact that I am an American citizen.

In our corner of the United States, my little family decided to have an adventure.  We decided to take a day trip to the Turner Falls Area in Davis, Oklahoma.  Although this was not what we expected, i.e. it's a water park, lol, we still made the best of it.  Mike decided, after deciding we didn't want to go into the park (we thought it was going to be a trail or just a state park type thing), to take us down to a creek bed so the girls could put their feet in the water.  When we left the house we told them we were going to go see a water fall, so they of course insisted that they put their feet in.  Well they got to put their feet in and what a blast they had.  I love that about my girls, they get so excited over the simplest things, and if you talk it up enough you can really make it something.  After we hiked to the creek bed we walked up to the highway and got some fried pies. It turned out to be a nice day.

Of course Mike wanted to grill- you know he is a grill master!-we invited a couple of the fellas from the college over.  The girls wanted to have a picnic so we spread out a blanket and they ate their dinner on top.  Maddie was just enjoying herself outside in the highchair where she could eat her hotdog.  We finished out the night watching many fireworks displays off in the distance.

Here is my flower garden looking patriotic with the flags.
