Our "Fourth" Weekend

When you're a military family, holidays are celebrated when everyone is together -- whether it's on the exact day, any time close to that day or just whenever you're together.  And that's how our July 4th weekend was celebrated -- well, minus 'Joe (who wasn't able to get a home pass but has chatted via FaceTime this weekend).

Sweet Lucy had been with us since Wednesday ... she's growing up too fast on her grandparents.  What a kind-hearted and precious young girl she is (and very patriotic)!

So Friday Mommy & Tag were able to come home!  Lucy was so excited to see them -- although this little girl does miss her Daddy.  But, it was priceless to spend the weekend with her Mommy & baby brother {uhhhhmmmm as Lucy would correct me, Tag is her little brother} !!!

And so Friday afternoon was painting time with Grandad ...

Saturday and today (Sunday) were very busy days as well.  Grandad treated everyone to breakfast at Denny's Saturday morning ... and then it was pool time!!! These two little ones are quite the fishies now that they've had a swim class --- and certainly more classes will follow!

These 2 little ones love each other so much & are always so proud of each other! When Lucy swam about half-way the pool to see Tag on the steps, Tag yelled 
"Yay Sissy!!!! You did it!!!!!!" 
He was so genuinely excited for her and proud of her!!

And this morning before church, it was "grands time" ... 
giving Mommy a little break while all 4 "grands" went to breakfast at McDonald's ... 
and who else would the little ones want to sit in a booth with --- 

 -- and he absolutely loved every moment!

And I would say that our July 4th weekend was indeed  

We all are so very thankful for those who laid down their lives so many years ago in order for us to live in the great country of the United States of America 
... and for those who continue to protect our Constitution and 
all of our freedoms.

 May God continue to bless the 
United States of America
