4th of July Weekend

We had a great four day weekend in DC over the fourth of July. We went down to meet up with my cousin Emily and her little boy, Jackson, and stayed at her Grandpa's house. The weather was fabulous! We did get caught in a major rainstorm with no where to get shelter. We were drenched through every layer of clothing! That's happened to me more than once this year.

On July 4th we had a pancake breakfast with Bill and Sheridan's ward and played on the playground, horseshoes, and volleyball. Then we relaxed for a while at their home and enjoyed each other's company. In the late afternoon we headed into the District and left Landon with Bill and Sheridan. They offered to babysit him and take him to their neighborhood fireworks display which was so nice of them.

The boys loved Millie the dog!

On the drive back to Philadelphia we stopped at the Washington D.C. Temple. It is beautiful and the visitor center was great. Emily and Jackson came home with us and have been here for the last few weeks!
