Fourth of July

  Fourth of July is definitely one of my favorite holidays.   I love everything about it.  The colors, decorations, family get-togethers, cookouts, picnics, fireworks and especially celebrating the blessing of being born in the USA.  I truely believe that God does bless us in America.



 Mike is retired from the Navy but he was stationed 12 of his 22 years with the Marines so they get equal billing at our house.          

Happy Birthday America


                   We had a little cookout on Sunday (burgers, potato salad, corn and baked beans)
                      (I didn't get pictures because of the before mentioned cooking and eating)  ha


We can't have 4th of July without watermelon ice-cream. 
It's usually the only time of year I make it.
lime sherbert, vanilla ice-cream and raspberry sherbert
with chocolate chips
(I didn't think to take a picture until after the melting began but it's really good)

This morning for breakfast we had Fourth of July French toast casserole, bacon and orange juice.

Now we are on our way to our city's Firework Celebration.  We may even try to hit two different ones.
I told you, I love this holiday and especially fireworks.

Dear Lord,
On this Fourth of July we celebrate our Independence Day.  Please bless us as we come together to be with family and friends to cookout, picnic and watch fireworks.  We give you thanks for the honor of living in the USA.   Bless those who have served and sacrificed for our freedom.  Please let us remember that our freedom was purchased at a very high price.  Bless everyone who celebrates today and keep us one nation under you lord.  Please help us to live our lives to glorify you.
