Happy July 4th

My favorite holiday has always been a tie between July 4th and Thanksgiving. I LOVE 4th of July! Its something about the fireworks, red white and blue, flags, feeling of pride being an American, the yummy desserts, BBQ's , sparklers, parades, the excitement in little kids eyes. Living in New England, added to the charm and tradition of the holiday. We would sit on the corner of Main Street and watch the parade go by. We would go to the Ashby Bonfire and watch a HUGE tower of pallets be lit while listening to patriotic band music. We would swim and BBQ with friends and eat delicious, beautifully decorated desserts. I just LOVE it! Elijah was supposed to be born on July 4th- he was 5 days early.
This year, I missed it. We moved on Thursday the 3rd and the 4th was spent unpacking. Marks parents were so kind to invite us over for dinner and then we went home and were too tired for fireworks. Oh well, next year we will do it up right- fireworks and all...
