We had an awsome 4th of July this year. Starting with when we first woke up, one of our neighbors went around to all the houses and tied red white and balloons all around. IT was fun to wake up to. We had fun with the neighbors all day. We had a picnic around dinner time. My neighborhood goes all out. We had our annual fish fry. One of our neighbors goes out on his boat and catches crab for everyone. We also have Salmon, shrimp, clams, ect. They boil it in a big pot with some corn on the cob and potatoes them dump it out on a big table for all to eat. It is pretty cool. The kids did there balloon parade. Where they march around the neighborhood with over 200balloons, to the song " I am glad to be an American". Tommy got to be the leader this year and hold the flag. He was pretty proud and took it very seriously. Then we cleaned up and started the firework show. All the neighbors contribute to the firework show. This year we had over 2 hours worth of fireworks. We had a lot of fun.
As I watched my kids run around, so carefree and play with there friends it made me so greatful for the Country we live in. I am so thankful for all the soldiers who gave there lives so we could enjoy freedom and this wonderful country.
