Happy Birthday U.S.

Hope everyone's 4th is spectacular...oooh, ahhh's
later this evening. I do miss going to the parade...
i would have to travel a while to see a good one. I
usually put in an old vhs of our home town parade...
funny, how the family goes and checks outside and
thinks there is a parade...i turn the audio on quite
loud...it is funny. I do this every few years...
brings back great memories.

Being away makes you appreciate all the details,
our town always had an auction and a few of the
local churches would put on events...games for
the kids, food. The local fire department would
have contests, also involving water of course.

I grew up in a great location, walk uptown to all
these events and close to school, lived near a town
warf, where the fireworks were great to see;
Small town America really
does know how to celebrate the 4th....

Our day today, will be low key, our children are
both having friends over, lots of BBQ a blueberry cake, tortellini salad, smore cookies, watermelon a bottle of wine and some games, water balloons
and later to Elizabeth City to see the firework display!

Enjoy Celebrating our Countries' birthday !!!
