Ah it seems this year is passing so quickly and we find ourselves at the 4th of July once more. I’ve always loved this holiday.. for that it stands for… and for the times spent with family and friends.

Every year we gather together and eat and drink…. laugh and play… and it’s nice. It’s not because we never do it any other time, because we do, it is just nice to know that our country… one that we love very much brings us together as a family… in every sense of that word.

Today I have to work (buttttt I am making double time and a half so I can’t complain too much) but after I’m heading over to my sisters for a bbq and swimming (if the weather permits). It should be fun for sure. I’m hoping to get a few tasty beverages down as well. Then tonight of course it will be at the lake for fireworks.

We have an awesome festitival in town every year at the center of town… the lake. Its called Go 4th. They have booths that you can grab some food… buy stuff.. and things to keep the kids entertained. Each day they have events that I never seem to see because I am always busy working. It’s a really awesome thing though.

The whole town comes and puts out blankets so that everyone is litering the lawn. The fireworks show usually lasts twenty minutes accompanied with music that always seems to make me tear up. I feel very proud to be part of this country.. and of all those who have given their lives to protect our rights.

So with that… I better get going.. I hope all of you have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!
