Celebrating our FREEDOM :)

We started the day out with some usual games. The kids had a great time and so did I. We walked around and played games and talked with our friends. It seems like we sometimes don't have enough time to visit, but the kids had a great time.
In Salina the Parade is at five in the afternoon. So we joined up with the Gladwells and there families and had lunch and watched the parade on there porch.
(Look at all the girls poor McKay has to deal with!)

Hannah LOVED the parade:) She wanted to eat every piece of candy that she got.
Patiently waiting for some more CANDY!!
McKay had a a great day and he got plenty of candy. K'Leigh was lucky and got to ride on a float. She was so happy to be with her friends from school!

We ended the day with going with our other adopted family and having dinner. Then we went swimming and then met back at Grandma Seals house and had some fireworks.
Hannah HATES the fireworks, she laid her head against my chest and I plugged her other ear and she would just lay there so still, it was so weird.
All in all we are so grateful for our freedom and thankful we could celebrate the holiday with our dad for the first time in six years. It was well worth sticking around home!!!

Cute pictures. Love the one of McKay and all the girls! Funny! Hannah's little shorts are so cute! Maddie didn't like the fireworks either!

Looks like you all had a great day!! Funny how Maddie and Hannah acted the same about the fireworks. Wonder if they would have liked them more if they weren't so tired??
