Happy 4th!

(This is basically what it looks like) 

Happy 4th of July everyone!  It’s one of the best holidays of the year, of course it doesn’t bet Christmas.  A day filled with BBQs, beer, and fireworks. 

I usually celebrate my birthday on the 4th because it’s close and excuse to double up on special events, birthday and holiday all in one.  In my family we don’t gather more than once every few weeks, and when we go get together we eat and leave.  The whole time everyone is looking at their watches and wondering when they can leave.  But it’s not like we don’t like each other, because we do.  I guess that’s just the “Northerner” in all of us, rushing from place to place for no apparent reason.

But today is an exceptional year.  My parents will be in our town’s parade.  My mom will be dressed as Betsy Ross, in all her long blue dress and wig glory.  My dad was suppose to be Davy Crockett, but somehow the costume went “missing.”  Supposedly it got dropped off at the house when no one was home, so it was left outside on the porch….but now it is no where to be found.  My guess is that my dad hid it somewhere, because he wanted to be any character from history with a gun, like Daniel Boone.  Interesting…

Well now I have to go take embarrassing pictures…enjoy your holiday!
