Every year, but one, we have taken a family picture of us on our front porch on the fourth of July. This year we were just a few days late. Our fourth of July day was very busy. We were a little sleepy because of the party that we have gone to the night before. Chick #2 was in the local 4th of July parade for his baseball team. I did not get pictures of that because my batteries died in camera. You have got to hate that when that happens. Then the afternoon was filled with cooking, lighting fireworks and swimming. This photo was taken on the 7th before we went to yet another party at one of our friends houses.
