Happy Independence Day

We started our Fourth of July celebrations early this morning here in the land north of our Nation’s capitol. We dressed up the kids and our wagon, and we marched in a community parade that has existed nearly as long as our city. (Which is to say, about 40 years. )

The kids had fun until they turned on each other and me, but really, it isn’t a holiday until I start screaming at my kids about candy in front of a crowd of waving on-lookers.

I hope everyone here in the US of A enjoys a safe celebration of the┬áday we signed for our freedom. And let’s not forget what it could otherwise have been here in our great nation:

Happy Independence Day, America!
