This is one of my favorite pictures, taken on July 4, 2010. We'd gone downtown to enjoy our beautiful fountain square, and to treat the girls to some ice cream at the coffee shop.
We usually have a pretty low-key Independence Day celebration at our house. Ribs, baked beans, and cole slaw are on the menu. I have a couple of red-white-and-blue crafts in mind. And, in keeping with our little family tradition, I foresee a trip for ice cream this afternoon.
And, as the girls say, "Happy Birthday, America!"
