1. Remember our surprise tulip? Apparently we also have a surprise rose bush. Once again, I didn't know that a rose could randomly show up in a random spot, but it did. It's near the crazy hill and one of our apple trees. Was it planted there? Do these things just show up? I don't know if we'll ever know. Maybe Lee has been weed whacking it for the past two years because we didn't know what it was. But now that we know what it is, we're excited to leave it be and see what happens.

3. We spent the day at my parents' house on Thursday. We went and had a picnic lunch with Lee at his work, and then the girls spent most of the day messing up Grammy and Grandad's house. Grammy is in Canada visiting our foreign family, but Grandad was there. The girls love him and Joya always says "Grandad is SO FUNNY!" We didn't see Ben as much as we would have liked to, but a guy's gotta work while there's work to be had.

Hope you enjoy this day celebrating our freedom!
