July 1st

Happy Canada Day!!!

We had a great day with family and friends. We got to go to the parade in Raymond with Scotts sisters. We then went to a big ZoBell family dinner where we ate lots of yummy food. Then we let Mia stay up late and watch the fireworks. We had a blast and love these kind of days when you just get to hang out and be with your favorite people, your family.

Looks like you had a great Canada Day.
I didn't know Mik served in Nicaragua. Matt (the guy in the pic with Mike) served there too and Mike is 1/2 Nicaraguan. His Dad is from there and his Mom is American.
