Happy Independence Day!

This year we celebrated the 4th of July by attending the City of Brea’s annual Country Fair.

Each year they set up a number of booths in a local park and have entertainment, contests and rides. Josh played oldies music on his bass with a band from our church called “Church Guys on Caffeine.” Eli and Cora decorated their bikes for the Kiddie Parade and Eli won a prize for the best decorated bike! He was very excited!! My dad, stepmom, and stepsister were here visiting and we had a great time BBQ-ing and hanging out with them.

That night, despite our exhaustion, we headed out to a local fireworks display. We camped out on a sidewalk next to a school ball field and watched one of the best fireworks shows I’ve ever seen! We were so close to the action that we had ashes raining down on us…it was great! Afterwards we finished off the evening with some frozen yogurt from Yogurtland.
It was a long, full but FUN day!
