We had a great 4th of July. We started the day out with the parade downtown and finished the day with our own little showing of fireworks. My mom surprised us and joined us for the evening. I have to say I got a little bit teary eyed as the parade started. When they walked by with the American flag and everyone started standing up to be able to look up and down the street and see the patriotism was such an awesome sight to see. I thank all of the service men and women who lay down their lives so that me and my family can enjoy that freedom. God Bless America!
