Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July! What are your plans for today? Here's what my day includes:

Day at the beach hoping to catch a glimpse of the ponies...


Carnival!
Ice cream from the Island Creamery...


Sparklers as soon as it is dark...I always write my name...
Fireworks to end what will be a perfect day!



Enjoy your day!!



John Adams wrote the following in a letter to his wife, Abagail, when referring to Independence Day:

"Will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."

Happy 4th of July!
