Today the family gets together for a Fourth of July celebration on the sixth. I have some new Lego sets for Nathan and Sam which are a big hit. Nathan puts his Star Wars set together very industriously.
Needless to say Nathan completes his Legos task quite quickly and goes off in search of something else to do. In the meantime, Jon, Ryan and I work with Sam on his gas station. Sam is not as adept as his older brother handling the little pieces. But he is happy with his results even if he merely improvises.
During the day we spend time in the pool and decorate our own flags. My flag is from Beeblandia and Nathan designs one from his country, U.S.S. We also make tissue flowers in red, white and blue. John grills some flank steak and we dine outside.
It is a fun and exhausting day for everyone.
