Fourth of July Celebration

John Adams, writing of the remembrance of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, said, "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."

Small town parades!  Nothing like them!  Some of my favorite moments from our town's.

Then it was on to Walter's parents' home for a barbecue, some grandbaby cuddling, and luscious summertime desserts (none of which I can take credit for).

A torential rain on the drive home added a little extra fun to the day!

I think John Adams would approve of the "illuminations" at the end of the day.  Most festive!
