Cousins relaxing on the hammock together.
Katelyn and Noelle
Sisters and cousins--Noelle, Ashton and Kennedy getting anxious for dark and fireworks.
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
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
funny family memories,
sitting outside most of the day on the 4th, the weather was incredible--
very unusual for Arkansas--
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.
