Red, White, & Blue

Around here, people do a lot of festive decorating for the Fourth Of July. There will be lots of parties, fireworks, and good food. And thanks for our wonderful freedom. What will you be doing on the Fourth?







“And rejoice! Celebrate all the good things that God, your God, has given you and your family…”

We old duffers stay home and let the young ones celebrate in the extreme heat of July! We'll watch the fireworks from our window...luckily we can see 'em from home.

Hi There, Just stopping by to say "Happy 4th of July".... Hope you have an incredible weekend whether you are traveling, with family or friends --or like us, just enjoying being home! We hope to grill a couple of steaks tomorrow. Our weather here is awesome right now...God Bless American --and God Bless YOU.

Love all of the decorations in your area.. My favorite is that mailbox...

Hugs,
Betsy

Oh my goodness, your area really does go all out for the 4th. I love the mailboxes and that cute little pig planter. I've only seen a few flags around here.

We are staying home and playing with the four very active kittens. Maybe grill some steaks.

Hi Ginny, I am back to answer your question about the orange cart in one of my photos. There is a bicyclist you pay to give you tours of the city and you sit in the back. We have them here in DC but a slightly different design.

Bobbi and Gracie said...

Great photo's Ginny! We will be having the kids and grandkids over for cookout and swimming :-) And what will you be doing? Happy 4th to you and Phil!
