This family has been a true gift to ours. They moved in next door about 5 years ago (I think?) and it's been the best thing that has happened to our neighborhood! The kids bring so much life and laughter, and almost every time I visit home, we hang out. Matt's recently been selling fireworks, and the store is open until July 8, so if you want any firecrackers, head to Waterloo before they sell out!

There will be a much longer post coming, but for now, Happy July 4th, and enjoy these few!
