The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. There is nothing like the swelling of your heart, with pride in your country, that occurs when the fireworks light and the patriotic hymns play. *sigh* I'm proud to live in this great nation.
This year was a bit different for us. We got a late start and didn't make it to the parade, although we did have patriotic pancakes, so I think we get an A for effort.
We had a lazy day at home which was nice, then spent the evening playing at the park with the kids and watched the fireworks. All in all a good day.
