Happy 4th of July

Just a few 4th of July memories.

  • Fireworks over the lake.
  • Burning my fingers on sparklers.
  • Picnics at Grevillea Park where we slid down the grassy hill on cardboard boxes.
  • Putting pennies on the train tracks so the train would squish them flat.
  • Chasing a bird at the park with a salt shaker (because if you put salt on their tail, they can’t fly and you can catch them).
  • Setting off fireworks in the driveway of our house.
  • Potato salad and deviled eggs
  • Singing the Star Spangled Banner

Happy Independence Day to everyone in the U.S.A.
