We celebrated the 4th on July 3rd this year at our friend’s house because Zack had to work on the fourth. A big cookout with our lifegroup, swimming, and fireworks for the kids. We had so much fun and the girls really enjoyed it. On the fourth Zack was on duty but was able to play in Ada’s annual 4th of July Softball game against the Police Department.family bonding essayThis year they let the city public works play and Oklahoma Highway Patrol. It was so fun to watch and a neat tradition. The girls got to play with Bull and all of the other fire station kiddos. And that was about the extent of our day. The girls and I tried to stay cool and ended up taking ZO a big tub of banana pudding to the station. We hope you had a wonderful holiday and are so very thankful for the men and women who have sacrificed it all for our freedom and safety.
