Happy 4th of July!

We had a wonderful 4th. Super hot, but good. We opted to skip the local parade since Chuck had a little accident over the weekend. He ended up with a severe sprain. He is off of crutches and using a cane now. Progress. Anyway, it was awfully hot so I was okay with skipping. After lunch we headed to my parents and meet up with my sister and her crew.
The afternoon was spent swimming. The water was cool and refreshing!
It was then time to grill out.  We had a traditional meal of hamburgers and hot dogs.  The holiday flare came through in the desserts. 
I made the cookies and the cheesecake was made by my nephew. 
The highlight of the day was fireworks. I love fireworks!
I love, love the 4th of July! As an American, I have freedom that was bought by brave men who gave up their lives so I can enjoy mine.  That is something that I take for granted sometimes.  But most of the time , I feel gratitude beyond comprehension.  Even with all of the issues that we are facing in our nation I can honestly say I love my country!

May your day be filled with joy in the journey!


  1. Happy 4th to you and your family.

  3. Happy 4th a day late. It looked like a lot of fun. Hubby was home so, we had breakfast together and bought some school supplies. We went to church last night then we watched the neighbors set off some fireworks. I am thankful for the freedom and the men and women who gave their lives for it. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
