When in the Course of Human Events. . .

Ever really studied our Declaration of Independence?  The wording was truly Revolutionary. . .and still inspires.  Truthfully, I think it and the Constitution are still very relevant.  Thanks be to God for freedom like ours!!  When you go to a foreign country, the difference between our freedom and that which might be enjoyed elsewhere is bigger than huge.

Just some pictures from this past week. . .Aidan at Mini Mites. . .

Learning some foot skills. . .skating on one foot between two sticks.  He's doing pretty good with this.


 Working on his stick skills.  He has a soft touch with the puck and some great passing!!  The practice on the Pipe Stem with Daddy is really showing on the ice.
And playing the game. . .I could here Aidan from the stands yelling out, "Here!!  I'm open!"  and "Here!  I'm sending it to you!" 



And then we went to the Fourth of July parade yesterday.  My little Russian American cutie pie. . .insisted on jeans that had a hole in the knee, flip flops and his camoflage hunting hat to go with his sleeveless USA t-shirt. . .so like his Daddy!!!  : )

 A few of our favorite things from the parade. . .an old fire engine.. .

Aidan got a little flag to wave. . .

A giant flag. . .


Tractors!!!!


A Unicyclist who was also juggling!!

And a whole lot of Corvettes, of which I am only showing three for the sake of brevity. . .



Aidan ended the afternoon at the park with a large lemonade. . .there weren't any moon bounces this year and the funnel cake wasn't ready yet. . .so we went back home where we had our smoked Carolina Barbaque and other goodies and ended with some home made Blackberry Cobbler and then. . .Fireworks!!!  Daddy even made it home in time for dinner!!!

Hope you had a great Fourth, too!
