Independence is Great
"In the United States, Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, picnics, concerts, baseball games, political speeches and ceremonies, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States."
This year my daughter will really be able to enjoy this wonderful holiday. She's always been too young to understand it or to fully appreciate the beautiful fireworks. She is only 3, so she still won't understand it, but at least she might like it :) I'm excited for her.Unfortunately this is the only photo I have of her from last year's July 4th... We were visiting my sis in Mass., the day was rained out... So we all stayed home, but it was still a good day! :)
Personal fireworks are illegal here, because of the dry environment the risk is just too great for fire. But maybe we'll be able to get by with some sparklers *crosses fingers*
How will you celebrate your Indendence?
