Independence Day

Happy 4th of July! I hope everyone enjoys the usual festivities of the day...parades, BBQs, picnics, beach parties, fireworks. We're going to our friends' annual BBQ this evening. Their home is on a hill and each year their backyard gives us a view of not one but three (yes, 3) fireworks displays put on by their city, the nearby community and the big amusement park in the area. So have a wonderful time today and remember to stay safe.

We enjoy loads of fireworks from our house too...unfortunately most of them are from our neighbors' trips to the next state for illegal fireworks to blow up the neighborhood!

Our town does a display too and our house is up on a hill so we can enjoy them from home and avoid the noise.

have a great independence day!
