We just got back from a wonderful evening of great food, company, and fireworks. All the Ladd clan migrated to my Grandpa and Grandma Ladd’s house for dinner and festivities. Most my relatives made the event and it was nice to see everyone. We ate some great hamburgers cooked by my Grandpa and then enjoyed a spectacular fireworks show on the front lawn. We are already reaping the benefits of living back in Bakersfield and are looking forward to many more family parties.
