Fourth of July Activitites
The kids all gathered around the base of Lady Liberty for a photo op. For some reason, I thought she would be much taller and surrounded by water not fields :)
We also drove some of the country roads and the kids had their first near death experience (or at least they think they had a near death experience). We had had a lot of rain the previous week, but we were driving down a gravel road that was safe -- until the gravel turned into what looked like a dry clay road. Well, the dirt and clay was not the least bit dry as J.A. surfed and pushed the van through. At one point we were stuck and trying to figure out how we would get out (the particular location had no cell phone reception). However, J.A. the master pilot was able to baby the van until she cooperated and we finally arrived back on almost dry ground.
At home, Ezekiel decided he wanted to be supper, so he climbed into the roaster and continued to try to turn it on (he neglected to notice that it was not plugged in).
This is not yet the end of our Fourth of July adventures, but I will save the rest for another post.
