Nothing too exciting to report for our holiday weekend. We've stayed close to home after being on the road the last 4 out of 5 weekends. The highlight for the kids has been the purchase of a kid's summer must-have: a slip n slide. I went all out and got the double one (that's supposed to be sarcastic) and it has proven to provide the kids, primarily Austin and Avery, with hours of entertainment. If these early scorching temperatures are any indicatinon, it looks like we have a long summer ahead of us so any activity to help cool us down is welcomed. I know I should have pics, but those will have to come another time when I decide to get my camera out of the bag.
If there are any soldiers or verterans who happen to come across this, we thank you for the sacrifices you have made to allow us to live in a free country. Because of you, our children have the opportunity to make their dreams a reality and be whatever they want to be. We salute you for your courage and dedication to the United States of America.
