Celebrating America!!!!

What a wonderful day we had celebrating our great country's birthday!
 I just LOVE all things the July 4th holiday offers-- the weather,  parades, cookouts, family, and fireworks!!!
It's all so much fun!
I am so grateful to all the men and women who have served and fought for the freedom that I enjoy!! 
Shane spent six years in the marines and I am so... proud of him for the time he spent serving our country!!
Once a Marine...always a Marine!
 And as our family went about enjoying all the wonderful festivities and celebrations of the day, the  song, "I'm proud to be and American" was continually playing in my head!
 And I'm proud to be an American 
where at least I know I'm free.
 And I won't forget the men who died, 
 who gave that right to me.
And I'd gladly stand up next to you 
 and defend her still today.
Cause there ain't no doubt 
I love this land
 God bless the U.S.A
