Independence Celebration

“Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters.” Hebrews 13:1

This past weekend was Independence Day. We got together and celebrated by enjoying each other with a cookout, and a huge water slide for the children. Here are some of the photos we took. Wish you could have joined us.

In  the meantime others visited and made new bonds of friendship.
