Happy Birthday, America!

On the 4th, we waited until late afternoon when the sun had calmed down and then went to Wild River Country. Ruby wore her patriotic swimsuit. She appears to be channeling Elektra from American Gladiators!
Trip has been such a good sport with the sunscreen applications and hats this summer. Such a sweet boy!
Rocking the Edward Cullen look!
After WRC we rushed home to shower, get the kids in PJs and head downtown for fireworks. Trip had to take his new Buzz flashlight and Ruby her butterfly glow stick.
We again went to our great fireworks viewing spot in a parking garage downtown. We just opened up the hatch of the van and watched from the comfort of our car.

Ruby took this picture of Rex and me since I remembered we had a similar photo from several years back.
This was taken atop the then TCBY tower on July 4th, 2003 just a couple of months before our wedding. We were just little chicks back then! Happy July 4th to all and to all a good night!
