Happy Independence Day!

What family 4th of July tradition is our favorite?  Oh man, that is easy–FIREWORKS!

We are heading out the door for the holiday, until I return. . . .

Found this video on the internet.  If you love the 4th of July as much as I do, you will like this too.

“The 4th” has been one of our family’s favorite holidays over the years.   I do not know, maybe we are just pyromaniacs.  Anyway, there have been no injuries over the years, but this cartoon fits.


Do not forget the freedom and independence that we are really celebrating!  Is this a great country or what?

If you can get away from all the family activities, work in a little time on the water for some “FINdependence” day celebrating too!  (I stole that line from Shark Week, coming next week!)

Fourth of July holiday channel cat caught & release from Merritt Reservoir a couple years ago.
