Let Freedom Ring


Annual Family Gathering on July 4th

I observed the holiday by participating in a tradition that I have taken part in as far back as I can remember... I spent the day with my larger family at our annual July 4th picnic in the park. This year, my granddaughter (who was sleeping most of the time) was introduced to the family and tradition, along with my son-in-law. My grandson made his third appearance at this yearly event and my wife was the photographer this time. My daughter was there but, she forgot to bring her camera. The weather was beautiful and everyone had a good time. We hope that you and yours enjoyed the holiday too.







Footnote: There was another large family celebrating the holiday at the park as well. Late in the afternoon, we decided to engage them in a "friendly" game of touch football and I'm happy to report that MY family won-lololol!!!
