Happy Fourth of July everyone!!

I have such fond memories celebrating the Fourth. I don't think of myself as super patriotic but there is just something about Independence day that makes me super happy.  My mom and dad used to enjoy celebrating with us, so having good memories from my childhood is probably a major reason.  As young kids we would eagerly look forward to twirling sparklers and watching a spectacular firework display at Front Park.

Now that I have my own family, I try so hard to make the day something my kids look forward to, a day for us to celebrate, remember, and enjoy. It's also a day that I was guaranteed to spend with my dad.  This is the third year I will not get to see his big smile, hear his zany laugh, or reminisce about "the good ole days". Really each year I even had an Independence Day to celebrate with my dad and family, well, those were all good days.

May you and your family enjoy every pop, sparkle, and boom on this good ole day!
