and Noelle

Kennedy and Ashton

Our neighbor put on an incredible fireworks display--this picture does not begin to do it justice--

On the way to movie--Despicable Me 2--there were nine of us--
It was a really cute movie--so wonderful when Hollywood makes a movie
that the whole family can see together.

pool time--Noelle's grandfather caught this action shot of her coming down the slide at our neighborhood pool--

Just some portrait shots--Ashton



Baby James

and Kennedy--

We enjoyed smoked beef tenderloin, racks of ribs, and ham during the long weekend-
fresh tomatoes and corn, hot rolls and butter,
baked potatoes and fresh green beans,
creamed green peas and black-eyed peas,
potato salad, an asian crunchy salad as well as regular salad,
Karo nut pie, apple pie and birthday cake and ice cream
for Ashton, Caroline and Boompa--

We ate too much!

We also enjoyed
card games,
funny family memories,
sitting outside most of the day on the 4th, the weather was incredible--
very unusual for Arkansas--

Thank you Lord for precious times together to makes memories that will enhance our future times together.
Our hearts are so grateful for all of your blessings to our family.
One of our son's former basketball players suffered a severe neck injury in a diving accident this weekend.  Would you please lift the Bruning family to God in prayer?  
Thank you sweet prayer warriors.
