My 4th of July Blog Post

Happy 4th of July to America!  Today is Independence Day.  How are you celebrating?

We have one little tradition:  We usually have our own miniature, very extremely miniature, parade out the front door with flag on pole in hand.  We hum patriotic sounding marching music as we march out to the porch and hang our flag out for display.

Other than that, we usually have had our own indoor picnic with fried chicken and some years have avoided the heat and bugs and watched the fireworks show on TV, from Boston Pops or wherever they air it from.

Last year, the day after 4th of July, we left for a trip to the beach and then to Disney to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.  So, we didn't go to an actual fireworks show.  This year, we are hoping to take in an actual show.

However, we don't know where to go.

We don't like crowds or traffic jams, and we don't like bugs.  Thankfully, this year should be mild temperatures, so we won't have to worry about heat being an issue.

All these plans and little celebrations for a holiday that remembers how men came together to sign a Declaration of Independence.

This Declaration of Independence gave us certain rights as American citizens, which we teach to our children, and enjoy but never take for granted.

Thank you to the men and women who lost their lives in the course of making our country free.  We do not take this lightly.

Happy 4th of July!
