Happy Fourth of July everyone!  Here is a cute quote that goes well with today….

              Charissa was out in the garage the other day getting ready to go do animal chores with some of us other girls.  She said, "Give me some liberty, or give me some death….but please don’t give me both!"

            Rebekah informed her, "That means to let you go free, or let you die."

           Charissa didn’t respond for a moment, then turned to me and said, "That’s what it means?!"  *waving her hand in the air*  "the whole conversation?!"    : D   Then later she asked me, "Does ‘death’ mean ‘die’?"

                                     *                                        *                                              *                                           

                  Tonight  we went to the annual patriotic concert in our area—it is equal to going to see the fireworks for us…nobody wants to miss it!  I loved it : D   Usually they have it outdoors, but it was rainy tonight, so the auditorium was packed!  There were people standing up in the back and along the sides of the building for the whole program : )  Thankfully, we were able to get seats.  Just barely.

               Also, some of you know how we like to keep track of how  many milkshakes our family gets at the fair each year—well we have officially started counting for this year : )  Last night we got 10 of them.   Last year it was 76 in one week : )   I wonder if we’ll beat that this year?!!!

    76 milkshakes? I'm kinda queasy at the thought of 76 milkshakes…hee hee…

    (I don't think I want liberty and death at the same time, either. LOL)

    …76 milkshakes is divided between 11 people in one whole week. I had an average of 2 a day last year : 0 : ) But you're right, 76 all at once does make one feel a bit queasy : D
