A Great Independence Day

I hope each and everyone one is having an enjoyable Independence Weekend celebration.  I know many are hitting the State Parks or camping in recreation areas across Nebraska and with this weather….Let’s just say it could not get any better!  I spent the 4th of July morning hosting my neighborhoods annual family fishing program and it was a blast.  I always enjoy getting young families outdoors.  Kids dig it!  They love to fishy, play in the water, catch bugs, and just be a kid.  What better way to celebrate our independence than with a hook, bobber and worms!  I believe Mr. Jefferson would be proud of these kids!  For these families, yesterday morning was about a lot more than just fishing!

This young lady was just loving life.
What kid doesn't like worms?
