4th of July

Well the long weekend is over and did we ever have a good time!  Here's the Krahn side of the family. 
And the Ortmann side of the family.

We did lots of eating!  So did the mosquitos!!

Priscilla and her cousins had fun hanging out together.
My nephew Benjamin was the patriot on the tea party float at the parade. 
Priscilla talked Aaron into wearing Arthur's cowboy hat to the parade.  Cute couple aren't they!
Took one quick jaunt out to the corn to see how much taller than knee high it was and it was about waist high on me. 
We always have our own "fireworks" in the form of the booms of guns target shooting.  These are my nephews.
Hannah brought along her pink .22 which everyone loved.
And Reuben just had to have his picture with that nice gun!   Even with all the fun, we enjoy having a day to celebrate our Indepence from being under a king, to our Dependance on God to sustain us as a nation.


  1. What a fun time! Have I ever mentioned that I love our family? ;)

  2. Very nice post. We love to have target practice too! My daughter and I did posts on our Civil War grandfather and other relatives that served in our armed forces for the 4th of July. Freedom is a costly thing! I'm so glad for freedom in Christ and our wonderful nation!

  3. Haha, that gun is awesome!! :) I had an AWESOME time this weekend!!!! I wish we lived closer so we could spend more time with you all...

  4. So refreshing and beautiful to see such a Herritage.


We'd love to hear what you have to say!
