This year for the 4th of July Tony and I spent it serving others. First in preparing both Tina and Claire to dress and enjoy the Rodeo which they went with Zeke, and a couple young boys that are also here visiting from Taiwan. They both loved dressing up a bit, and greeted Zeke with a "Yahoo" as they opened the door.
After many attempts of taking a picture of the four of us, with no luck, we settled with separate pictures with the girls.
Mollala Roundup. Both the girls had mixed emotions watching the clowns, and the bull riders. They felt part was very cruel to the bulls, and the others were crazy. I tend to agree. They did enjoy the horses per session.
After the rodeo they enjoyed a BBQ, and bonfire at Zeke's parents in Oregon City.
Tony and I attended a Veterans appreciation BBQ at the Happy Valley Church building pavilion. It was sponsored by our ward, but was a time that we could serve the Veterans, and show appreciation for the service they rendered for us. It was a very fun, yet full day in the sun. By evening we were all ready to call it a day, especially knowing Tuesday was a school & work day.
