This 4th of July was a break from tradition for us. In the past, we would bar-b-cue and have fireworks at my parent's home. How I miss those times! But, things are very different with my Mother being gone and my Dad being remarried. So, this year, we were invited to our good friends (the Pursers) to bar-b-cue and have fireworks. It was good times, good food and good company. Mike cooked bratwurst and we had homemade ice cream made by Stacie and lemon pound cake made by Bonnie. Yummy! The kids had fun doing fireworks and just hanging out together! We are so thankful for our friendship with the Pursers. They are like family to us.
