The 4th of July Weekend - 2008

For the St. Louis region it's a rare thing to experience a 4th of July that isn't blistering hot and humid with afternoon and evening thunderstorms.  The 4th fell on a Friday this year and not only did we have a long weekend but we had some mild weather to go with it.
We spent the 4th having dinner with friends and watching the Riverfront fireworks that night.  We spent our Saturday with Arnie, Rebeccah and the kids.  A beautiful day, the kids were in a terrific mood, a terrific meal, and a great time by all.  Here are some pictures from that day.

Our little Allison was in a terrific mood! She was enjoying her summer vacation, there were a lot of kids at the house, and she got some cuddles from Grandma.

Some friends over for a visit. Some of Summer's friends joined the group later, but you didn't see much of them nor were they heard.

Summer consented to take an afternoon hike with Grandpa. Here she is posing at the edge of the lake. Beautiful girl, beautiful setting, beautiful day!

Summer and Paul. Summer grows at least 1 inch every day. Paul's smile is perpetual!

I like to spend my time on the deck looking at the wildlife. Here the sun was setting over the hill on the other side of the valley. This is a very peaceful spot!
