(Newser) – Jon and Kate Gosselin set their differences aside to celebrate July Fourth with the kids in Wernersville, Penn., Us reports. Despite their pending divorce, Jon helped Kate pick berries for their annual American flag cake, lit sparklers for the children, and played with the family dogs. The festivities were not filmed for Jon and Kate Plus 8, which TLC Network suspended until next month to give the family "some time off to regroup."
