The land of the free and the home of the brave.

With the 4th of July falling on a Thursday we weren't quite sure how it'd pan out, but we ended up having a really good time here in Canyon! Our festivities began with a breakfast with other members of our Church here in Canyon. I signed up to take fruit so I thought cutting up watermelon in the shape of stars would be a fun, festive and cute fruit to take!

We then ventured downtown where the parade would be and walked around "the square" where booths from local stores and restaurants were set up.

One of the many reasons that I love Texas - wildflowers! These beautiful Indian Blanket flowers have taken over a yard here in Canyon, which I think is gorgeous!

My good friend Denise from high school was in town with family for the day and made a stop by our place for a couple of hours. It was so good getting to see her!

We then had some yummy burgers seasoned with Cole's special spice, "McColemick," sweet potato fries and Lisa's famous Buster Bars came after the firework show, which we watched from the back of Goldie - typical 4th of July food and festivities if you ask us!

We love, support and pray for our troops just about everyday and are so very grateful for them and for this free country we are able to live in. 

God bless America!
