The Schindlers came over around noon to swim, grill, eat and celebrate the 4th. After that, we all headed to Jason and Jolene's for more food and fellowship. It was a very full, relaxing day which ended with the kiddos collasping into bed.
Here are some pictures of the day.....

We ended up trying to catch the fireworks at Ft. Meade. We watched from a parking lot near by since it was an hour wait to get into the base.
