232 to 233

Here's a little now and then from our country's last birthday to the present.  Last year our family began the Independence day celebration with our first annual water balloon fight.

This year we carried on the tradition. 

And if you want to check out the high-level intensity of the fight, check out this video =)

Maybe next year Adrienne will get in on some of the action.  But for this year, she was pretty happy to kick back and watch some fireworks.  

For that matter, Marianna and her friends were a little excited about the fireworks themselves. 

And for a little more than and now?  Check out this.

That was one year ago before fireworks, and here is one year later.

One birthday to the next has brought with it a lot of change, for our country certainly and also for my girls. But one thing is definitely the same. I am so grateful to live in this country, and I am proud of all of the people who have fought and continue to fight to give us freedom.  I love this country, and I hope to pass down that love to my girls.
