Good ol' Kentucky 4th!

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July! We had a fun one. It was our last 4th in Kentucky, and boy did we live it up! The holiday weekend started off with a trip to Lake Nolin for grilling and boating with the Shipley's. We took Roscoe along too and he had a ball swimming in the lake and chasing after ginormous sticks. Then on Monday the 4th, the morning started out with a girl's trip with Diane to the Amish. We got the yummiest fresh produce and most delicious homemade peanut brittle! Then that afternoon we grabbed the boys and we all went to buy fireworks in Indiana for the big 4th of July Shipley extravaganza. After getting the fireworks we all headed back to the Shipley's for their big 4th of July party. We had so much fun playing around with Roscoe, grilling out, eating cotton candy, and then the night ended with a gigantic fireworks show put on by the guys. There is nothing like sitting outside with friends in their backyard watching fireworks that you bought yourself and getting your own custom's a tradition that I will definitely miss about Kentucky. We had the best day. I am so grateful for the freedoms we so abundantly enjoy!
