This girl is such a gem!

She recently had to swear an oath at Immigration in Bedford because she entered the country over the age of 14….for those of you who don't remember….we adopted her the day before her 14th birthday.

It was such a sweet ceremony.  We are so proud of her.

Fitting time doing it the Thursday before the Fourth of July!

We love you Sara!

Fourth of July

We had a wonderful Fourth of July!

Our morning started with a parade in our home town….Kiara was involved because of the Jr. Miss Raymond Pageant.

The boys represented their Alert Cadet unit…NH 1st Bravo.

It was followed by an old fashion celebration with food and games.  It was good to chat with so many folks we haven't seen, play games and we won lots of prizes too.

Afterwards, we had he cousins come over and joined us to celebrate Michaela's birthday.

We were gifted with a case of marshmallow shooters.  We armed everyone and away they went.  The dogs chased over them clean up…not necessarily the best but good none the less.

We ended the night with sparklers.

Happy Fourth of July!
