Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July, Happy Independence Day! Whatever it is you call it, I hope you all have a safe and fun holiday!

After one of the parties in our neighborhood last night, I wonder what TONIGHT will bring! This kid must have invited every single person he has ever met. Most of the people on my street park in their driveways or garages so there are not many cars on the street. Last night every single inch of available street parking was for his guests. And his house is about 1100 square feet so I don't know where they all fit!

Today, we will be celebrating the 4th at my brother-in-law's house. His little grand-daughter (my great niece?) is turning 1 this week so it's a combo Independence Day/birthday party over there. I just love one year old parties! The little ones always look so cute with frosting in their hands and on their faces. I haven't seen the little one since Christmas so I'm sure she has changed quite a bit since then!

My BIL is also quite the pyromaniac so I'm sure there will be plenty of fireworks all around. Good thing he is also a paramedic in case something goes horribly awry!

Have a safe and happy 4th! And thank you to all our military personnel (past and present) who have fought and served to make our country what it is.
