🎆🎆🎆🎆Happy 4th of July, America!🎆🎆🎆🎆
I LOVE the 4th. Love, love, love it. It is my favorite holiday.
This year, I am choosing to ignore the hijacking of this holiday and all that bullshit going on in DC, because I am not going to let him ruin it for me. For today, I am going to celebrate the things that already make America a great nation. Then tomorrow it is back to work, doing everything I can to make sure 2020 yields a different outcome.
Eleanor and I are very lucky to live very close to the best fireworks show in Omaha. We can watch from the deck without having to deal with the crowds and traffic, and I am SO EXCITED. We also set of fireworks of our own before the big show starts, and every year Eleanor gets more and more brave - though of course she can not light them herself yet, it does not stop her from asking!
I have so many fond memories of the 4th of July at my grandparents' old house, when I was a child. They lived just outside of town, and across the road was a hill that we would drive up and park at the top of. From the hill you could see the fireworks shows of so many surrounding towns, it was wonderful.
How do you and your family celebrate the 4th of July?
(and reading, which I will be doing until Eleanor comes home from her dad's for the show!)
