"A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken." Ecclesiastes 4:12

Happy Birthday America 2010
This past weekend for the 4th of July, we were lucky enough to head up north to spend the holiday with Jon's family at their beautiful lake home. We had lots of fun and the only thing that would have made it even better than it was is if Jon/Daddy could have been there with us.
Saturday we spent the day swimming and making sand castles and just hanging out. Saturday night we helped Grandma and Grandpa Erickson make home made ice cream and then finished the night off with some Bingo. We all managed to win a Bingo!
Sunday we went to the local parade and it was fun to see all the floats. The kids collected SIX pounds of candy! Yikes!
Sunday afternoon we took part in the boat parade that was hosted on the lake we were on. Then after the parade, all the kids took turns tubing behind the boat. It was KJ's 1st time and he LOVED it and cannot wait to do it again. It was a fun weekend overall. Big thanks to Aunt Lori and Uncle Chris for hosting us at the cabin. We had a blast making memories with all of you!
