4th of July 2009



We went to downtown McKinney and sweated it out to take a look at the car show and check out the local festivities. It was HOT (I think 104)and the kids were pretty much done after 1 block. John and I dragged them around for about and hour and then we got some cool lemonade and headed back home. I didn't get very many pictures as I was carrying Paisley for most of the time and it was so hot I just didn't even think about it. It was a relaxing day and we had a nice evening at the pool with friends and watched the fireworks show. Scott spent half of the day on the lake with a family renting the boat and we are happy and feel blessed to have responses to our add on craigslist. We've had 3 in just the last week. If your looking for a fun time on the lake, Captain Scott is GREAT!

The kids look so cute even in the hot weather. You guys are so clever. I love the idea of renting the boat.

Those grandkids of mine are all so good looking, even Luke showing his misery! It does look like a hot day! Ethen is looking so grown up! I love Phoebe's hair decor with the flags, and Paisley's dressed up just so cute! Nice cold lemonade sounds like just what you all needed. Good to see John there with you, too! Love, Mom

i love the 1st photo - so classically AMerican. =) and the kids with the firetruck, too. very smalltown American feel to them.

Nicole,
I just saw that your husband got laid off from his job this last month-- I know exactly how you feel! I am so sorry! Jeff lost his job in March and we were just reeling! I was never so scared in my life--- but we've been taken care of, (even though his new work situation is not ideal) and I know that you will too. Keep praying. I'm praying for you too.
