As an adult, the 4th of July has become my favorite holiday. I love celebrating the nation we live in and giving recognition to those who fight to keep our nation free. We’ve been lucky to celebrate the 4th of July in some awesome places throughout our great country. When we lived in Maryland we took a day trip to Washington DC where we watched the fireworks on the Mall. I can’t even express to you the gratitude I felt sitting there surrounded by thousands of people who felt the same way about my country as I do. We’ve watched fireworks over water in Baltimore and Jacksonville. I love fireworks over water! We’ve also walked with thousands of people over a bridge in Baltimore while Lee Greenwood sang God Bless The USA. I don’t think there was a dry eye anywhere. But my favorite thing about the 4th of July is being able to celebrate with my family and recognizing the freedoms we have been given and are blessed to enjoy. So I guess what it comes down to is that I feel blessed to live where I live and am grateful that I can be surrounded by those I love. Here’s a bit of our celebration this year.
In from the Heat
I hope you had a memorable 4th of July and are having an enjoyable Summer!
