At the Fourth of July Carnival in Ames:
Ryan was convinced that we needed cake and ice cream for America’s birthday, so I obliged with some cupcakes from Hy-Vee. We sang Happy Birthday to America and the boys blew out the candles since, as Ryan said, “America can’t just come down out of the sky and blow them out for us.” Um . . .
We had a fun and happy Fourth of July, and we hope you did too!
