4th of July!

We had a great day!  It started off slow, just enjoying the morning together as a family.  We were in our PJs till lunch time, it was fabulous!  Zack and I also got an opportunity to talk about our future after he gets out of the military and the timing of that.  We are trusting God for the unknown in the spring.  It was relieving to talk about it and get a game plan down.  I can't lie, I am nervous about our departure from military care.
In the afternoon we packed up and headed to our friends for some kabobs, rice, corn on the cob, and a delicious red, white and blue cake.  Moriah and Faith got to play together.  They haven't been together in a few weeks and it was interesting to watch them interact.  They have both changed a lot since the last play date.  Faith is walking around and was very concerned about her toys and Moriah not getting in her way.  Moriah had fun screaming at her, her favorite way to communicate.  After our time with the Flemings we headed to the field on base for the 4th celebration with our good friends the Curtises.  It looked like rain but we were determined to see fireworks.  We found a good spot and set up camp.  There was a live band and Moriah had a blast dancing.  She loves to move to music.  It started to sprinkle and we were going to tough it out but then the lightning started and it was pouring.  I didn't want to be in a field with an umbrella waiting to be struck by lightning so we headed to the car and went home.  We saw a few fireworks on TV while watching the Macy's 4th in NY.  Maybe next year we can actually see the fireworks in person.  Here are a few pictures of our day!  Hope your 4th was full of celebration!
