2017 Blue Jeans Week 27

Love the 4th of July.  One of my favorite holidays.  Love flying my flag.  Love honoring my country!  So grateful for the many men and women who have given SOOOOO much so we can be free.  Love our founding fathers.  Love this quote by author David McCullough about the founding fathers, "They were not perfect.  They were imperfect---that's what's so miraculous."   So true!  Great week.  Take a look. . .
This boy Loves shopping for fireworks.  We have him the money he could spend, and then we went to three different firework stands until he found the cheapest price for what he wanted.  Love it! 
Swim meet this week.  The last of the season for Mr J.  He did awesome!

A 4th of July tradition at our house is our Jello flag :)  Been making it for years.  Yummy!

Another fun 4th of July treat we have is this magical layered drink.

So awesome how it works.  Got it from Mel's Kitchen Cafe here--the key is lots of ice and pour the drink onto the ice!   
The kids on their own decided to make cookies and take them to people today.  Awesome!

And summer fun on the trampoline for a minute before it gets too hot!

And finding ways to beat the heat--tried out a new shaved ice place Saturday night.  Yum!  It hit the spot!

Hope you had a great week!  Thanks for visiting!
