I LOVE 4th of July celebrations! Some may think that a bit funny as it's our country's independence from the farm vet's home country. :) We don't let that stand between us, obviously. And now he has two countries he calls home, so he is very fortunate. And we are all so fortunate for the great working relationship between the U.S.A. and England!
Another love is that the U.S.A. flag is referred to as "Old Glory." What a great name, right? Here's what I found about the history on that: http://www.usflag.org/history/oldglorystory.html
More of what I love: the yummy barbecuing that happens, getting to hear "America The Beautiful" on the radio, fantastic fireworks, and the feeling of PATRIOTISM amongst the community!
We wish you all a fun, safe 4th of July celebration. I hope we can all take a moment to remember what this great country stands for and admire how far it has come in a relatively short amount of time (compared to much older countries).
Aww, she didn't want to wear the cute patriotic headband that mama was so excited about! I took a photo of her anyway.
