4th of July!

Happy 240th Birthday America!  We've spent the last few days up at the cabin enjoying time with the extended family.  While it's been a bit cooler than years past its still been a great time with everyone.

Maeve enjoyed singing "Raise Raise the Flag" numerous times, eating homemade vanilla ice cream courtesy of Steve and Terry (a Kirchner tradition for many years) and Maeve enjoyed peeking over the top of the counter to sneak some caterpillars (gummi worms), delicious BBQ and a smoked turkey, running around with Will and of course what 4th of July would be complete without some extremely noisy fireworks.  Cecilia managed to sleep through the fireworks, but they were too noisy for Maeve and woke her up scared.  Thanks to Grandma Jan, we were able to settle her back down for a solid night of sleep.

After all the pictures Mommy and Daddy took, running around chasing Will, playing with Aunt's and Uncle's both girls enjoyed some much needed sleep!!

We're about to head back home once Maeve wakes up from her nap.  Hope everyone's had a safe and exciting holiday weekend with family like we have!


  1. Looks like a relaxing holiday weekend in West Battle Lake with lots of good food to go around for all. Cecilia got in on numerous photo opportunities, and Maeve looks very patriotic. All the extended family appears to be having a wonderful time.

  2. Happy 4th of July! Love seeing all the wonderful pictures. All the children are adorable! Nothing like a fun holiday weekend at the lake.🇺🇸😀
