Happy 235th Birthday USA!

Firecrackers

Last night we had a fun celebration with friends and neighbors. 

There were tons of firecrackers.  Lots of sparklers.  A few big bangs and lots of laughs.

But everyone had lots of fun!

There is so much in our country we take for granted.  This is the perfect time to reflect on the many freedoms we enjoy.  Thank you to everyone who serves and has served in our armed forces to ensure that we (and others) experience that freedom!

Have a fun and safe holiday, friends!
