Happy Independence Day Gabe!

Colorado is on a burn ban so all private fireworks were banned as well.  It was so bad that Collins Fireworks didn't even set up there stands anywhere in town.  All that people could buy were party poppers.  Even sparklers were outlawed.  Needless to say that didn't stop some people, but it wasn't a big deal since it rained pretty hard earlier in the afternoon and then later this evening.  We had planned to go to Fort Carson's firework show yesterday but it rained pretty hard just before the show so we decided to stay home.  We went to the Broadmoor this evening,  they have a nice show and we will probably go there next year as well.

Rocky came home this afternoon after being camping with her friend's family.  I missed her but I didn't miss the fighting between her and Becca.  I have to say that your two sisters have pretty much been inseperable since she came home.  Its nice to be back together again.  All thats missing is you.

We're going to celebrate Zack's birthday at the Renaissance Festival.  We're going during the last weekend of July.  Yes, the kids will all be dressed up again.  Pirates of Caribbean 2 opens on Friday so we'll be going to see it then, sort of getting us in the mood. 

Wow, its still raining outside.  I love the sound of rain.

We visited the eagles' nest yesterday and again today.  The babies are learning to fly.  One is doing very well, but the other doesn't fly much.  Closer examination of the pictures we took reveal a wound on the top of its head.  Dad will keep an eye on it, and let the guys at the wildlife office know if it needs any help.

Your cousin Steven should be on his way home to Aunty Val and Uncle Ken's for his leave.

Dad sends his love and says to stay alert and safe.  Miss you so much.  Love you always,
