July 4th fun!

We had a fun, relaxing day as we celebrated our country's birthday.
Some fellow missionaries invited us over and outdid themselves preparing food, games, and decorating in red, white, and blue.
The banner was completely hand-made.  Isn't it beautiful!?


After a delicious meal we played games.  One of the games was putting the Presidents in order from #1 - #44.  Andrew did an outstanding job and only missed 5!  The other game was even harder, but we learned a lot about each state's name.  Then we headed outside for some water balloon games.

 Before our family left for our hour drive home we let the kids do some sparklers.  Even though it was still quite light outside (about 8:30p.m.), the kids had a blast.

  2. Pretty, pretty pictures!

    When I was in Junior High, my teacher helped us learn the presidents by having us sing them all to the tune of "Yankee Doodle Dandy." To this day, I can still quote them all in order without a mistake... just every four years, when a new President is added, you have to get creative and figure out how to add that one in. Try it.... and it will make it so much easier on your kids! I plan on teaching it to mine when the time comes, too!
