The Sanford family once again graciously invited the entire church to their home for our Independence Day celebration (on the 3rd this year). Although the temps were warm, the shade trees in the yard coupled with a light wind made for delightful weather for an afternoon and evening outdoors. Of course, what made the day truly delightful was simply being together as a church family, as evidenced by the following photos...
Geneva, who like the other two-year-olds, couldn't get enough of the sliding board.
Mr. Niesen in a rare moment when he found a chair to sit in. His level of activity makes the rest of us dads look like couch potatoes. Okay, maybe the rest of us ARE couch potatoes.
Mr. Castle and Mr. Vest doing little to dispel the notion that the rest of us are couch potatoes. Actually, they had just finished dinner and were thinking fond thoughts of dessert.
Micah and Johanna in a deep and stimulating conversation with Elder McDonald. Evidently little Henry has never heard anything quite so shocking!
Ashton, after donning colonial garb, felt the muse come upon him and demanded an opportunity to read the text of the Declaration of Independence.
And last but not least, little Caleb who is showing evidence that it's close to bed time (since he's clutching dad's pants leg).
Thanks for visiting!
