The 4th of July was a lot of fun. We went to Fort Polk where Dillon's Dad works. They have a big to-do. We got there around 5 p.m. and brought a picnic dinner. The fireworks were fun. However, before the show they do a 50 gun salute, one pow for each state. It is very loud and takes quite awhile. Chloe screamed throught out. Leia held her ears. After the fireworks started Leia still held her ears. After the fireworks were over we told her to put her hands down. Then they would shoot off one more and she would put up her hands. That happened at least 5 or 6 times, no kidding!

Chloe got to meet her Uncles James and Jeremy and her Aunt Jessica O'Brien. Leia doesn't remember them so she got to know them all over again. She is partial to James. James came over Thursday night and the twins joined us all on Friday night. PaPa bought a new truck on Friday. His caught fire and the insurance company totaled it out. He was borrowing our truck. On Saturday he picked the kids up in his new truck. Today we went to visit them again and pick up our truck. I am glad Leia is getting to know them. Since they live in North Carolina they only come to visit once a year.
