4th of July Celebration!

We were able to celebrate the 4th of July with the family. On Friday afternoon Richard, Heather and family arrived from Maryland. We along with some of her family went to Sonny's for dinner. On Saturday the 3rd Keystone celebrated their annual 4th of July with the parade, craft show and other things. The parade was actually pretty good for a small town parade, a little loud on the sirens, but I guess this is the best opportunity they get to blow those sirens. The weather was wonderful. Cool, breezy and cloudy. Not at all like a normal 4th of July day. It felt wonderful. Below Emily and Tanek are waiting for the parade and getting their flags ready.

And my Maryland son, Rich

The cousins minus 3. Nicole wasn't able to come on the trip and Shea and Chelsea were not here yet. Pictured are Tanek, Austin, Hannah, Kirsten, Casey, and Emily.

Austin and Tanek playing with the Monster trucks. Austin is one of Tanek's favorite people. He loves it when Austin gets to visit all the way from Minnesota.

Tanek asked me if Austin was his cousin and I told him he could be if he wanted him to be and he said he did, so now Austin is his cousin too.

Danny and Shea (Danny & Jenny's oldest daughter who just graduated from High School. We went to her graduation party a couple weeks ago.

All the party activities must have wore Danny out. I am sure he will appreciate this picture being posted. :)
