We have sure missed being in Sandpoint for the Fourth.... but we have enjoyed it down here for sure.
We were able to take Sigma and Max to the dog park.... Sigma (my parents blind dog) has not had many (normal dog) experiences and we were able to take him swimming for the first time.... well he is a natural. It was fun to get in and swim with him... he swam around me like he was a shark and loved every minute of it. I believe it is so important for humans and animals with disabilities to experience many things. I think they are capable of doing almost anything... and people say they can't and that makes me sad...
We then went up to the mountains and watched the valley for fireworks.... best idea ever... we saw lots of shows and saw the whole valley.... and we avoided the crowds of people.

There are no photos in this post because the last posts have been crazy with photos but enjoy this great quote from President Harold B Lee.... "AMERICA"

"Men may fail in this country, earthquakes may come, seas may
heave beyond their bounds, there may be great drought, disaster, and hardship, but this nation, founded on principles laid down by men whom God raised up, will never fail. This is the cradle of humanity, where life on this earth began in the Garden of Eden. This is the place of the new Jerusalem. This is the place that the Lord said is favored above all other nations in all the world. This is the place where the Savior will come to His temple. This is the favored land in all the world. Yes, I repeat, men may fail, but this nation won’t fail. I have faith in America; you and I must have faith in America, if we understand the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are living in a day when we must pay heed to these challenges.

I plead with you not to preach pessimism. Preach that this is the greatest country in all the world. This is the favored land. This is the land of our forefathers. It is the nation that will stand despite whatever trials or crises it may yet have to pass through."

Happy Birthday America
