so even though my sweetie wasn't with us this year, we still had a fantastic day! thank you to all of our military personnel, past and present, who stand tall in the face of danger to protect the freedoms that we enjoy. the freedom to say what we want to say, go where we want to go, and worship our God anytime...in almost any place. we've still got a ways to go on that last one. our own government, not the other terrorists across the seas, is who we need to fight for that freedom. hope you had a fabulous 4th!

while we were there, we took some beach pics of our families. getting everyone to cooperate was a task for sure!
we took the boys to The Track after dinner one night and had so much fun riding gocarts! the boys even found some child-sized gocarts that they could drive by themselves. scary! they couldn't pay me enough to work on the track where the 7 and 4 year olds were cut loose on gas powered gocarts!
we can't wait for vacation next year! hopefully it's "Disney, here we come!"

maybe the cutest and funniest thing about this season is brady as the bat boy! brady just turned 4 so he can't start t-ball until next year. he wants to play sooooo bad!! our coach was really sweet letting him be the bat boy and he does it so well! when he runs out for a bat, he pauses just a second so the crowd can cheer for him! all of the parents think he's hilarious and clap and holler for him! ....and yes, i have it on video!
gotta run! my great husband is taking me to lunch today. hope to post a few other things this afternoon or tonight so check back!

the boys and i went with my parents to the saturday night performance of the rodeo. that was the night the horse passed out! yes, that's what i said. a bucking horse came out of the chute and immediately slammed into the fence and collapsed! i mean....not moving, not breathing, nothing. it was very unsettling! about 1 minute into the drama, blake looked at me and said, "you're a nurse mom....go help him!" i couldn't help but smile! i was flattered that he thought i might actually be able to help! anyway, the horse finally jumped up and stumbled around. they said he knocked the wind out of himself when he hit the fence! the boys were so excited when he got up. brady said,"thank you Lord, he's not dead!"
i know, what kind of mother puts her children on the back of a real bull??!! must have been the cotton candy talking!
