"You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. "
I just love the 4th of July. All the family gatherings, the fireworks and of coarse the cookouts. Some of my most favorite memories were spending time with the entire family, setting off bottle rockets, eating off of picnic tables and running around with sparklers, I always thought of magical faeries when I would run around the yard, leaving a trail of sparkles!
So every year I go a little crazy with my 4th of July pinwheels, but I just love watching them spin in the breeze. Please keep our troops in your thoughts, without their patriotism and service we would not have the freedom we all enjoy! Happy 4th of July everyone. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do
