4th of July in pictures

From our Nation's Birthday~

To Elisha's Birthday~ It was a festive Holiday with our family. Add some animal crackers~ And you can have a tea party before everyone arrives for the 'real' party. Little Jacob seems to worm his way into all of his sister's tea parties- I'm figuring the extra treats may have something to do with it :)

Time to move on to some fishing with PapPap~

Elizabeth tried calling the fish to her~And Jacob was the master fisherman, with 3 catches of the day. Dragonflies all around~ Smiles from all~ Time for some RC boating, until big brother discovers little brother snuck off with big brother's boat~ And time for wild berry picking with Grandma and Grandpa Tony~

Wild berries are the best~

Even had enough for morning breakfast after Elizabeth snitched all she could. Mommy helped just a little with that too :)

Relaxed time to enjoy more of nature~
And you have the makings for one activity-filled Holiday! Happy 4th of July all!

The berries thing takes me back. When I was five, there was a huge wild blackberry bush across the street from the house. I begged my mom to help pick berries and make a pie. She did. In August, I think. It was killer hot, we spent a couple hours being bitten by bugs and she stayed in the hot kitchen, made the crosshatch pie crust and everything. Once the pie was done, we let it cool and cut me a piece. I took one bite and said, "I don't like this. It has seeds in it." I don't think she's ever let me live that down.
