More 4th of July

Hello! I noticed the my Mom and Rachel have already posted 4th of July pictures, so I'll try not to duplicate their posts.

It was a beautiful day - Aaron took the above picture as we were driving home from the parade
Sunday morning, our church (Westside Baptist) had a patriotic service down by "The Point" - We were pleased with the turn-out (about 40 people) and everything went smoothly. At the last minute, we decided to have it inside the picnic shelter instead of on the trailor/bleachers - a good thing because halfway through the sermon it started to rain!

Someone found this keyboard for us to borrow - I've never played piano outside before, especially connected to a big speaker! There was no pedal, which was a little odd, but overall it went ok.
Aaron started and ended the sermon with history of our nation's founding and in the middle gave the gospel - telling how we can each have freedom from sin and it's eternal punishment.
Jeshua, Joshua, Matthias, and Caleb (there were a couple other boys around too...) - they "chased" Isaac to the house with cap-guns.
Miriam and Hosanna and someone's teddy bear...We went over to the Ortmann's for a picnic on Saturday, but sadly, I don't have any pictures from then, and on the 4th we had a picnic at the Krahn's -
