Happy 4th of July
I absolutely LOVE the 4th of July! I think it is probably one of my favorite holidays, after Christmas, of course! I love how for a day, out country remembers how special our great nation is and everyone comes together to celebrate our country's birthday. I love all of the patriotic songs. I love the BBQ's. I love the red, white and blue attire. I love the fireworks. I love the patriotism that everyone shows. I love how proud it makes me feel to be married to a Marine. I love how I always tear up at the National Anthem and I'm Proud to Be An American (when you're a Marine Spouse, those songs take on a whole new meaning). I just LOVE America and I am so thankful for our freedom and for those who fought and for those who continue to fight to keep it!
We had a small BBQ at the Williamson's on the 4th and hung out with them until we went to the fireworks. We sat in the backyard and watched the kids play and Bobby made us roasted marshmallows, which most of us turned into smores! Yummy!
After the BBQ we headed to Mira Mesa to watch the fireworks at a park near Madison's preschool. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed our time together as a family!
I love to get up early and work out. It starts my day off with energy while giving me peace and quiet as well as time to myself to talk with God. I am married to a wonderful man with whom we have a beautiful daughter and a dashing son! Life can't get much better than this!!
