I started blogging so that my family could see my children and keep up with as they grow. I love to sew and used to blog about that here on occasion. Now, I blog about my creations at miymdiary.blogspot.com with a friend. Stay here for to read about my family and visit the other blog for more on sewing!

Happy 4th of July!

For the 4th of July we went to the coast. We went to Heceta Head Lighthouse and hiked up the path to the lighthouse. Then we went to Florence and went to the beach. Here are our pictures. (by the way, I am going for the record for number of pictures in a post)
This is Natalie's sandy face at the beach.

Alona wrote her name in the sand!

Jeff, Natalie, and Alona. Isn't the reflection cool. It was just really wet sand!

Ashley wrote her name in the sand, too!

A bus stop in Florence. The bench was made out of a huge piece of driftwood!

Later that night we came home, showered, and went to see fireworks. Alona slept through them. Natalie didn't want to look at them. Ashley loved them!
We are grateful to all the many men and women who have lost their lives, families, homes, and possessions for our freedom! It is because of their sacrifices that we have all that we do in this country!
