Our trip to Kentucky!

Our trip to Kentucky was a lot of fun. The kids did really great on the 11 hour drive. We all cheered when we saw the sign!! We learned on this trip just how city we all are. There is a lot of green and grass and fields on the drive down. It was sooooo good to finally see a city!!

We tried out the local Chinese place. This is everyone who was willing, eating some frog legs!

Ezra got to get his hair braided!!! It turned out great!!

We took the kids to IHOP!! First time for Ezra and Jackson!!
We ate out at this fun place while in Louisville. I don't remember the name right now but they had these things in the parking lot!!!

Of course we had to do some swimming in the hotel pool.

Happy 4th of July!!

We had a fun 4th of July, even though it rained for most of the day. This was our first 4th of July with all 7 of us.
We spent the day inside playing board games, grilling out, and we did do our annual trip to DQ!!

My cute Americans!

I love this picture!! Matt knew of this cute little park so we ate our ice cream out there.

Ana really liked doing sparklers.

Durant was a little worried about them!

Settling in to watch the Fireworks!! This was Ezra and Jackson's first US Fireworks show. They enjoyed it.
I have to admit that I LOVE living in the United States! I really really do. I'm so thankful for the opportunities and freedoms that we all have.

Happy 4th of July!

Carter's All-Star baseball!!!

Carter had his first All-Star games this weekend. He ended up playing 5 games in two days. He did great!! He got to pitch and play the outfield. This was also the first time his team has played actual game together and they ended up getting 3rd place. Way to go Eau Claire Red!!!

It is so fun watching Carter steal bases!! He really enjoys that part too!!

Look how cute that #7 is!!!!

Getting their awesome trophies!!

It was so fun watching Carter get his trophy!! Way to go Carter. Not only is he a great baseball player, he's also has great sportsmanship!!
