A Family Fourth

Tired of our usual festivities of BBQing and watching fireworks from the roof top, the Hunt clan packed up and headed to the woods determined to have a "small town" July 4th. Jen and Ken were visiting for the weekend and with the exception of our soon-to-be addition, Andrea, the whole family was together!

Arriving Friday, we set up our tent compound and shared a late night around the fire feasting on tin foil dinners. (We nearly headed for Denny's since our food took so long to cook!)

On the 4th we went to town for breakfast at the local diner and spent some time on the grass in the park were the fireworks were to be held that night. In the afternoon I made the rounds to all of the antique shops. (On my quest I found a lovely hat, vintage tablecloth, and a tin canister.) At night we snagged a perfect spot to watch the fireworks light up the sky right above us. Tragically, Jen lost a beloved flipflop, but otherwise the day was very enjoyable.

Kara made a delicious breakfast Sunday morning and we shared our testimonies with one another. It is a true blessing to be a part of this family. We are like a good patchwork quilt...each of us unique and stitched together with love.
